BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Homicides are on the rise as gun violence continues across Baltimore City. 

One of the recent shootings occurred at Carroll Park Sunday night. Four people were shot, one person was killed in what Mayor Brandon Scott calls a “mass shooting”. 

Councilwoman Phylicia Porter says, moments before the shooting “carloads of teenagers were still being dropped off, unknowingly headed into danger”. 

The mayor and Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison addressed the media on Monday saying they will continue to look for ways to suppress violence in the city. 

More than 100 people have died from gun violence in Baltimore City so far this year. 

In the second hour of the show, Dion Cartwright and Dayvon Love with the Baltimore Children and Youth Fund join Dr. Kaye for the discussion and to share what their organization is doing to improve the quality of life for young people in the city.
