Repeat Violence Returns In Reservoir Hill
By A.F. James MacArthur

Brandon Davis, killed 1 September, 

on 1100 block of Whitelock Ave.
On a holiday weekend with thousands of tourists downtown for the Grand Prix of Baltimore, things were business as usual elsewhere in the the city.

Brandon Davis, 27, is dead after being shot multiple times Sunday night. 

Baltimore Police were dispatched for a shooting, at 11:21 p.m. Sunday to the 1100 block of Whitelock Ave., in the Reservoir Hill neighborhood.

Sources close to the investigation tell The Baltimore Spectator, Davis was shot in the head along with being wounded in the upper body. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

A crowd of residents lined the streets Sunday as investigators searched the scene for evidence. At one point, while several witnesses were being escorted into a police car, "stop snitching" was heard from a woman standing among the bystanders.

No known suspects or motives were reported.

Area No Stranger To Violence

A mere block away, a man was reported shot just a little over week ago, in an incident that would later be reclassified as a non-shooting. Reporter Justin Fenton happened to be on a police ride-along that night.

In April of 2009, at 03:00 a.m. a 27 year old man was walking on the 1100 block of Whitelock Ave. with several other men, when an argument broke out between two them. Police said one man attempted to break up the argument when someone fired a shot that struck him in the upper right arm.

Antoine Ennis, 37, was fatally shot on the same block on November 30, of 2009.  

Man Stabbed In East Baltimore

A man was severely wounded after being stabbed Sunday morning in East Baltimore.

Although few details are known, The Baltimore Spectator was on scene around 2:00 a.m., as police and crime scene investigators searched for clues and interviewed witnesses. 

Large pools of blood were still on the streets, serving as a vivid indication of the severity of the victims wounds. The blood splatter formed a short trail on the street, possibly indicating an attempt by the victim to flee his attacker.

Very little is known about the attack and current condition of the victim. It is unclear if the motive was robbery or something else. The stabbing appears to have initiated in front of a late night, fast food carryout.

Police on scene offered no information on what happened, but a female supervisor did take the time to bark at photographer @MolotovFlicker; "what are you doing?", while The Baltimore Spectator attempted to cover the incident.

The incident has not been reported by Baltimore media, nor has it been tweeted by Baltimore Police, despite a one time promise by the department to announce all crimes of this nature via their Twitter social media account. It's almost as if it never happened.

There was a noticeable absence of crime reporting over the holiday weekend while the Grand Prix race was in town. 

Numerous sources, including our own first hand empirical evidence suggests that despite the silence, violence did not go on holiday for the weekend. 

More Unreported Violence

Two brothers were stabbed Friday night, on the 800 block of N. Streeper St. On scene sources say at least one of the victims appeared to be severely wounded. 

Three days later, Baltimore media still hasn't reported on the incident. The police are silent as well.

Little is known about the stabbing or what led up to it, the current status of the investigation, and the current status of the victims.
