BALTIMORE, MD (Friday, April 23, 2021) — Mayor Brandon M. Scott issued the following statement on the shootings of two Department of Public Works Employees in Northeast Baltimore on Friday evening:

"Creating a better Baltimore starts with hardworking city employees who work tirelessly to deliver key services. It is unacceptable that these public servants have to worry about their personal safety while dedicating their lives to move our Baltimore forward. As Mayor, I am committed to working with Commissioner Harrison and City Administrator Shorter to keep city employees safe and out of harms way. I ask that you keep the families of the two solid waste workers in your prayers as we gather more details."
