BALTIMORE (AP) — Police in Baltimore say five teens, believed to be high school students on their lunch break, were shot at a shopping center and one has died.

Police Commissioner Michael Harrison says officers called to the Edmondson Village shopping center around 11:15 a.m. Wednesday found the five male victims with gunshot wounds.

All were taken to hospitals, where police say one 16-year-old boy died. The injuries of the other four are not considered life-threatening.

Harrison says police believe the five teens were students at a nearby high school and they were on their lunch break when two shooters opened fire, then fled behind the building.

He says police do not have a description of the shooters.
