Three people were shot in the 800 block of W. Lexington Street Friday morning.

Baltimore Police responded to the scene around 11:30 a.m. Three adult males were taken to the hospital for treatment.

One person died, and two other victims are expected to survive.

Annie Brandon's two daughters and 11-year-old grandson live near where the incident happened. She said she was with one of her daughters at a store when she heard gunshots. "We were just standing outside the store. My daughter went in the store, I was standing outside smoking a cigarette and I heard pop, pop, pop. I didn't pay it no mind and I went back to the alley that way because I never pay it any mind," Brandon said.

Police are still investigating how many shooters were involved. Detectives are also looking for any witnesses or surveillance cameras in the area.

"They're looking for evidence, we're also knocking on doors to see if anyone inside their home saw anything and of course, we'll check to see if there are any cameras in the area whether they're CitiWatch cameras or any other types of cameras that may have captured all or part of this incident," said Baltimore City Police Detective Jeremy Silbert.

Brandon said it’s incidents like this that has her daughter looking to move out of the area and to a place where her grandson can safely play outside.

“His mother doesn't let him outside. He comes over my house and I don't even live around here in this area but it's just sad that he can't come outside to play. I mean, he doesn't even know the little children who live around here because he's in the house," said Brandon.

Earlier Friday, police had a metro crime stoppers vehicle parked near the crime scene. It was to remind anyone who saw something that they can report it anonymously to police. They say even the smallest piece of information could help detectives figure out who was involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-866-7LOCKUP.
