BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police confirm that a person was injured early Sunday morning in Fells Point following a shooting.

The incident happened at a little before 2:30 a.m. in the 1600 block of Aliceanna Street.

Multiple vehicles were damaged within the block due to gunfire. One vehicle was occupied and that person suffered a laceration to the head and responded to an area hospital.

After doctors examined the victim, they discovered that the victim was not shot, but that they did suffer a laceration.

This latest incident comes a week after a triple shooting and multiple fights led to an expanded police presence in the Fells Point area.

Senate President Bill Ferguson who represents the area, commented on the ongoing violence in a Tweet Monday tying it to a police reform package passed during this year's General Assembly.

"No residents and visitors should fear violence when walking along public streets. An important balance exists between under enforcement and over enforcement," said Ferguson. "We achieve that balance and we achieve real public safety when constitutional policing leads to the appropriate enforcement of our laws and where the system yields swift, certain, and just consequences for those who break the law."
