BALTIMORE – BALTIMORE (AP) — Police are investigating a series of shootings that left seven people dead and three more injured over a violent Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (goo-lee-EHL-mee) says there have been ten shootings since Friday.
In two of the fatal shootings, police have identified persons of interest, and charges are pending against one of them.
Guglielmi says the department is responding with extra patrols, special deployments of plainclothes officers, and additional homicide detectives.
He says most of the shootings appear to be related to drug activity, while one of them appeared to be a domestic dispute.
