BALTIMORE, Md. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Baltimore Field Division and the Metro Crime Stoppers of Maryland have announced a combined reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for shooting five people – two children and three adults – in South Baltimore Friday evening.
At about 8:20 p.m., unidentified black males, who were armed, exited a silver, mid-2000s Honda Accord and opened fire at the intersection of Ramsay and Monroe Streets, in the Carrollton Ridge area of Southern Baltimore. As a result, a 1-year-old child, 2-year-old child, the children's mother and two adult males were all shot and injured.
“ATF stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Baltimore Police Department as we work to identify armed criminals preying on our communities,” said ATF Baltimore Special Agent in Charge Rob Cekada. “We will work tirelessly to investigate and incarcerate those persons responsible for these senseless shootings. ATF will not take the pressure off of armed criminals until Baltimore neighborhoods can be free of violence.”
All five of the victims were taken to area hospitals and are in stable condition.
"I am very grateful to the ATF and Metro Crime Stoppers for offering this significant reward and for their ongoing partnership with the Baltimore Police Department,” said Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison. “The person or people responsible for this heinous crime must, and will, be brought to justice, and I am urging anyone with information about the case to contact Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP or the Baltimore Police Department's Citywide Shooting Unit at 410-396-2221."
