Multiple people shot in Baltimore

BALTIMORE - February ended violently in Baltimore, with a quadruple shooting that left one dead Saturday afternoon, CBS station WJZ reports.

The scene in northeast Baltimore was littered with shell casings when police arrived just before 4 p.m.

"They found four individuals that were met by gunshot. At this point, it looks like one person has passed. The other three victims have been taken to area hospitals where they are being treated for their wounds," said Darryl Desousa, of the Baltimore Police Department.

The motive behind the shooting is unknown.

"We have no indication what it may be about. We know the one victim that is deceased is not from this area," said Rich Worley, Baltimore Police's Northeast commander.

"We're trying to fit the pieces to the puzzle together at this time. It's way too early for any descriptions of persons or vehicles," Desousa said.

The identity and condition of the three victims' hospitalized remains unknown at this time.
