BALTIMORE — A 19-year-old is in serious condition after being shot outside SweetPeaz Southern Kitchen Friday afternoon.

According to a nearby business owner, the teen was the son of SweePeaz owner.

According to police, the teen was shot at around 4 p.m., after getting into an argument with a man inside a restaurant.

Police say the suspect walked out of the restaurant, returned with a gun and shot the victim before fleeing. The teen was taken to the hospital after he was shot in the chest.

City Councilman Eric Costello tweeted that the victim and suspect knew other.

The shooter has not been arrested.

Business owner Vanessa White told WMAR-2 News she is fed up by all of the violence in Baltimore.

"Last thing i heard before i went to bed last night was about the pregnant woman being shot and three more people being shot," said White, owner of nearby Vanessa's Vintage Treasures. "I'm thinking, 'what has happened to Baltimore?' What has happened to mankind where you can shoot up a car that has a pregnant woman in it or you can go inside of a restaurant and shoot somebody?"
