Violent Easter Weekend in Baltimore

According to Baltimore police, a pregnant woman and her unborn child were among the homicide victims in the city over the holy weekend. Officers received reports of a domestic dispute in the 4800 block of Claybury Avenue around 3:30 Easter afternoon, and, upon arrival at the scene, found evidence of a shooting, but neither victim nor suspect. Two hours later, the woman and her unborn child were discovered outside a local hospital. Both died from the wounds suffered.

Three other Baltimore residents died violently over the Easter weekend, including:

  • A 25-year-old Brooklyn neighborhood man, who was shot multiple times around noon on Easter Sunday
  • A 57-year-old man slain in a robbery in the Cherry Hill area just before 6 pm on Saturday
  • A 28-year-old man killed around 12:30 am Sunday morning by an unknown gunman in the Oliver neighborhood
