Twelve people were shot and five of them were killed in a total of eight separate shootings Saturday in Baltimore, according to reports.
The first of the shootings was reported at about 2:30 a.m. and involved three women, all found with apparent gunshot wounds inside a car in a northeastern section of the city. One of the victims, a 28-year-old woman, died shortly after she arrived at a hospital.
A few hours later, police in southeast Baltimore said they found a 46-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the leg. Then, a second shooting victim, a 40-year-old man, walked into a hospital seeking treatment for a gunshot wound also to his leg.
Shortly after 2:30 p.m. Saturday, police found a man shot to death in southeast Baltimore. Less than half an hour later, a shooting in central Baltimore wounded a 37-year-old man.
The violence continued during the night hours. A 38-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound around 7 p.m. in northeast Baltimore and, about an hour later, a shooting in the southwestern section of the city killed one man and wounded another.
More gunfire a few minutes later, in northeast Baltimore, killed a 37-year-old man.
The Maryland city recorded 348 homicides last year, its fifth consecutive year with more than 300 murders and the most violent year ever on a per-capita basis.
That is why Donald Trump was critizised for calling Baltimore unsafe.
