BALTIMORE — A hairdresser was inside an apartment working on a client when shots were fired through their building.

Fortunately, they were not in the room where the bullets struck and no one was injured.

However, police are investigating the shooting at an apartment complex in the 1500 block of Argyle Avenue in Northwest Baltimore.

A portion of the street was blocked off by police tape.

Windows in the building were shattered, and still, officers are searching for the gunman.

"I was in the house doing hair at the time," hairdresser Mia Robinson said.

At least 21 evidence markers on are the ground.

Bullets shattered the glass of her second floor apartment window.

"I seen them dispersing and that’s when I pulled my blind up and said, 'y’all shot my damn window up,'" Robinson said.

Witnesses told WMAR-2 News those involved in the shooting were teenagers.

"They don’t care. They don’t care about me, you, her," Robinson said. "They don’t even care about themselves. They so off the chain."

A gunshot victim herself, neighbor Julia Smoot said these children need to put down the guns because they are negatively impacting the community.

"This is every day, all day long," Smoot said. "It’s not the shooting, it’s the stabbing, it’s the fighting and they don’t come one and two, they come as a pack."

"That’s why I say accountability. You know, they don’t have that," Robinson said. "It’s not in their vocabulary at all. They don’t know what it means they have nobody to teach them that."
