"We are familiar with at least one of the victims in this case, now, and early indications is that this appears to be an act of retaliatory violence," says Baltimore Police Spokesman T.J. Smith.

The suspect, who has not been identified, is described as a black male wearing a red sweatshirt. Smith says he took off on foot, south on 5th Street.

Officers are canvassing the area for witnesses.

"Today's suspect can be tomorrow's victim, and that's what we're seeing in a lot of cases, unfortunately," Smith says.

Witnesses told WJZ's Devin Bartolotta they heard multiple shots.

One woman says the market has been robbed multiple times, and there have been shootings there before.
