BALTIMORE — Officials were on scene of a police-involved shooting in Baltimore on Saturday.

The shooting occurred in the 3900 block of Erdman Avenue around 4:50 p.m.

Police say two officers were on patrol when they witnessed an incident. The officers then got out of the car and approached the incident.
