A 10-year-old girl and two men were shot Saturday afternoon in Baltimore, city police said.
Police say a sergeant in the area of the 2300 block of North Fulton Avenue heard gunfire around 3:21 p.m.
Officers were dispatched to the location and began canvassing the area for potential victims and witnesses.
According to police, officers discovered two wounded men, a 45-year-old male and a 23-year-old male. Officers also located a 10-year-old female suffering from a gunshot wound in the 2300 block of Avalon Avenue
The victims were all transported to area hospitals by ambulance.
At a news conference officials said the shooting occurred between an argument between two groups of men, and the 10-year-old girl was caught in the crossfire, and not the intended target.
Police Commissioner Michael Harrison could not say how the girl was related to any of the men involved in the shooting.
“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.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-396-2477 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.
