Baltimore Authorities Announce New Unit to Target Violent, Repeat Gun Offenders

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office and police department teamed up Wednesday to announce a new task force that will target violent, repeat gun offenders.

The announcement comes the same week three 16-year-olds were shot. So far this year, there’s been close to 500 shootings in the city.

City leaders believe it’s the same small group of criminals who commit these brazen crimes.

Crime scenes that have become all too familiar. Gunfire that even our future generation has become accustomed to.
