Thaniel said he took cover in his car when he heard the gunshots.

"I jumped in my car," Thaniel said. "Everyone was running down screaming. By the time the cars went the opposite direction everyone was trying to see what was going on."

Police said they were already in the area after getting a hit on a stolen car.

Residents said they saw multiple people running and that's when they learned about the shooting.

"It was at least one lady right here across the street from me on the bus stop. She got shot in her ankle," Thaniel said.

Police confirmed that woman was 63 years old, one of two victims injured. The other was a 27-year-old man.

"One of the victims was indeed waiting on a bus and that victim is one of the non-fatal victims," Baltimore Police Deputy Commissioner Sheree Briscoe said.

Thaniel said he saw the man police pronounced dead at the scene.

"When they were driving down the street, they were still shooting, so I’m not sure if he was shot as he was running or he was running cause he was shot, but either way, he ended up across the street from where I was," Thaniel said.

Police said one man appeared to be the target after the suspects engaged in some sort of altercation.

"The other victims appear at this point to not have been the target of the intent," Briscoe said.

Officials said after the individuals were shooting on the block they carjacked a vehicle trying to flee the scene and ended up crashing into another vehicle, injuring the driver inside.

"We will not stop. Our detectives will not stop until we find these individuals who carried out this cowardly act," Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said. "We asking everybody who knows anything to let us know what you know about this incident."
