BALTIMORE, MD. (Thursday, July 7, 2022) - Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement in response to the incident that occurred this afternoon at the intersection of Light Street and Conway Street.

"This is an active investigation. As the facts become clear, my office will share updates.

I want to be very clear – if you are on the streets of Baltimore and endanger the safety of others or turn to violence to solve your problems, we will hold you accountable.

Regardless of what caused this incident, it is a sad reminder that far too often easily avoidable confrontations escalate into acts of violence.

Through enforcement and engagement, we continue to work with BPD and other partners to deter young people and adults from being involved in conduct that puts lives at risk."
