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

Police said minors — ages 14 and 15 — were standing outside the Citgo Gas Station, in the 2300 block of Harford Road, shortly after 5 p.m. when a person approached them on foot, started shooting and then took off.

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.

The teens were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers have not made any arrests.

"It’s become a norm, throughout Baltimore City. It’s crazy thought," said Michael Dolberry, who lives in the community.

At the scene, police found at least 20 bullet shell casings.

"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."

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2433 or call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
