It happened around 5 p.m. Sunday, according to Baltimore police spokeswoman Chakia Fennoy, who confirmed to The Associated Press that one person was killed and seven others injured by gunfire.
A man approached the crowd on foot and opened fire, WJZ reported. Police believe it was a “targeted shooting” and that another person may have returned fire.
Fennoy was unable to confirm the conditions of the seven victims or a motive in the shooting.
Baltimore’s acting Mayor Jack Young is asking for the public’s help in finding the gunman.
“Someone knows something. These things happen, they don’t happen by happenstance,” Young said during a press conference after the shooting.
“People know who’s doing these shootings,” he said.
