BALTIMORE, MD. (Saturday, May 28, 2022) - Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement in response to a double shooting at the Inner Harbor that occurred this evening that led to the deaths of two teenagers.

"I am aware of the shooting at the Inner Harbor this evening and have been briefed by Commissioner Harrison. My heart is with the teenage victims and their families. I am grateful for the speedy response by BPD officers, who arrived on the scene in under a minute."

"I am sickened that this plague continues to grip our city. Another senseless act of violence results in another life lost in our city. We can be better; I will continue to push every public safety agency to do more, but it will also require all of us to collectively say enough is enough, that we’re not going to accept or allow violence in our city. The mission to build a safer Baltimore requires all of us to lean in because the stakes are too high and the need too urgent."
