BALTIMORE — Two teenagers were wounded in a shooting outside of an East Baltimore gas station Monday afternoon.

At least 20 shots were fired.
"It’s just bad and it doesn’t seem to get any better," said Janice Stephenson, who lives in the Darley Park neighborhood.

"This weekend alone I know we had at least five shootings in this location, in this zip, and I just want it to change," Stephenson said. "I’m just sick of us living in fear. I don’t know if we can walk to the store, if our babies are going to be safe. It’s just too much."
