FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALTIMORE, MD (Monday, May 31, 2021) — Mayor Brandon M. Scott issued a statement on this weekend's violence:
“The gun violence witnessed this weekend shows us that there are cowards among us who are willing to take a life, no matter how small or insignificant the beef. We must hold them accountable and rid our streets of the weapons they use to take our daughters and sons away from us. I will be meeting with Commissioner Harrison to discuss what changes need to happen for the Baltimore Police Department to have a greater immediate impact on this violence. I will also be determining what other agencies can bring to the table to bolster these efforts."
