Baltimore - Shortly after 11:00 p.m. Baltimore Police reported via twitter; officers were on the scene of the above location in north west Baltimore, for a call of an adult male reported to be shot.
A source revealed an adult male was shot multiple times and as of this writing was in critical condition enroute to a local trauma center. The incident may have taken place inside a business, possibly a store.
This is the second shooting of the night. Earlier, police reported a male was shot in the arm on Edmondson ave.
Since the start of the year, city officials and many in media have been touting crime statistics from last year, seeming to indicate lower incidence of reported crime, as some sort of triumph. Mean while violent crime seems to have taken a notable spike and has surged along at a steady pace, as if to punctuate the fact our city is still a very dangerous place.
