7 shot, 1 fatally, at Baltimore street cookouts
A gunman fired indiscriminately into a crowd where people were gathered for cookouts on a street in Baltimore, wounding seven people, one of them fatally, the city’s police commissioner said.
Authorities said the shooting happened around 5 p.m. Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said a black man approached a crowd on foot and began firing. He said the shooting appeared to be “extremely targeted” but did not elaborate on a possible motive.
The commissioner said there were two cookouts occurring on opposite sides of the street.
