BALTIMORE  — Baltimore Police have arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the Inner Harbor shooting that killed a teenager and injured two others during Memorial Day weekend.

The suspect was arrested at his home in Howard County by members of the Warrant Task Force at 6:35 a.m. on Jun. 16.

He has been charged with first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree attempted murder, reckless endangerment and various firearms violations.

Baltimore Police confirmed that the suspect was one of the two riding the blue scooter in a photo they released earlier this month.

17-year-old Neal Mack was killed as a result of the shooting around 7:30 p.m. on May 28.

"I think, unfortunately, it’s really common in Baltimore to have frequent shootings," Baltimore resident Mary Maldarelli said. "As a physician it really breaks my heart because I care for these people every day."

Maldarelli, like many Baltimoreans, said says the age of the suspected juvenile shooter is concerning.

“I would really hope, reach out to each other with compassion and find a way to meet their neighbors,” she said. “That’s just not just some stranger on the street that could be someone who’s going through a really rough time who might need an extra hand.”

Mack was a member of Tendea Family, and the group honored him with a community cleanup.

"They got to get out here in the community and talk to these kids because, most the time, the reason why they’re doing it is because they’re missing some form of guidance," Baltimore resident Dre Robinson said.
