A 10-year-old girl and two men were shot Saturday afternoon in Baltimore, city police said.

An argument happened before 3:30 p.m. in west Baltimore between the two groups, leading several men to fire at each other, city police Commissioner Michael Harrison said at a news conference.

The male adults who were shot are ages 45 and 23. All three wounded were taken to hospitals and listed in stable condition on Saturday evening, according to police.

An officer driving in the area saw what happened and gave aid to one of the shooting victims, WBAL-TV reported. Other officers stopped a vehicle with another wounded person inside, the commissioner said. The vehicle drove away while the officers assisted the person who was shot.

“We are asking anyone who may have anyone information about any of these individuals who were in this argument and who began firing in broad daylight in a brazen cowardly act to solve whatever this conflict was…to call us right away,” Police Commissioner Michael Harrison told reporters at a late-afternoon news conference.


The 10-year-old was located not far from where the shooting began, according to a police statement.

“I don’t care what your silly little stupid beef is, that 10-year-old baby had nothing to do with that beef,” Mayor Brandon Scott said, adding that “grown men don’t settle their beef by shooting people, let alone random people who were just standing outside.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-396-2477 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.
