BALTIMORE — Baltimore had a weekend of blood shed as city police continue to investigate six different shootings that left six people dead.

Francis Summers has been living in the City of Baltimore for over 30 years, and she says unfortunately shootings are something she became accustomed to.

This is why she wasn’t surprised to hear there was a shooting in the 600 block of N. Dukeland St. that left a 25-year-old woman injured blocks from Summer's home.

"It's scary. You can just be sitting outside on your step and someone can attack you," said Summers.

On Friday there was a quadruple shooting in 1800 block of W. Lafayette Ave., where a 21 and 50-year-old female along with a 33 and 46-year-old male were found with non-life-threatening gunshot injuries.

The violence didn't stop there, on Saturday, police found a 35-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound in the 2700 block of Maryland Avenue where he was pronounced dead.

Seven hours later, officers were called to the 2500 block of Washington Blvd. for reports of another shooting where they found a man with gunshot wounds who was taken to the hospital.

Police also reported that around 5pm officers were called out for a shooting in the 1900 block of Wilkens Avenue.

When police searched the area, they found a man in the 1900 block of Ramsay St. who was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound, and around 7pm Saturday, a female was found dead from gunshot wounds in the 2400 block of Talbot Road.

"I think there needs to be something done, what I don't know what but they need to do something about it," said Cynthia Cross Baltimore Resident.

Sunday was no different, Western District Patrol Officers were called to the 600 block of N. Dukeland St. where they found a 25-year-old woman suffering from a non-fatal-gunshot wound, and on the 1300 block of Lakeside Avenue police pronounced a 40-year-old man dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

"I just feel the community should get together and plan something for the young people. We need to teach young people, how to get jobs, how to live better and go to college," said Summers.

Anyone with information regarding the shootings is encouraged to contact Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.
