It was widely reported that May 2015 was a record month for homicides in Baltimore, with more than 40 reported, the highest number since the 1970s. What’s going on tonight in the city? Baltimore Sun crime reporter Justin Fenton has covered six shootings in the last 60 minutes.
Before that? A triple shooting, with the victims only 13, 15 and 16.
Oh, and there was this as well.
