Baltimore Body Count: Police Say 3 More Fatally Shot in City

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- The body count from the persistent violence in Baltimore continued to grow during the final days of 2019 as three people died in a quadruple shooting Monday night.           

Police on Tuesday said two men were found dead in a home in the northern part of the city, while a third later died at a hospital. A fourth man was wounded in the shooting and sought treatment at a hospital, where he remains in serious but stable condition.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said in a news conference that detectives do not have a suspect yet but believe the perpetrator is “likely” known to the victims as the shooting happened inside a home that did not have signs of forced entry. He urged anyone with information to contact police.           

The three deaths put the city's homicide count at 347 for the year, the second-highest ever recorded. Last week, Baltimore broke its annual per-capita homicide rate.           

With just over 600,000 residents, the city now has a homicide rate of about 57 per 100,000 people. The new rate eclipses that of 1993, when the city had a record 353 killings but was much more populous before years of population exodus.           

By contrast, New York City, with more than 8 million residents, had 306 homicides through Dec. 15.
