(Baltimore, MD) -- The Baltimore City Council's Public Safety Committee held another hearing Wednesday on the Brooklyn Homes mass shooting that left two dead and 28 injured.

City leaders want answers about which agencies knew about the Brooklyn Day event, when they knew it and why protocols were not followed.

Councilman Mark Conway says it was a tragic incident that the city must learn from.

The committee pointed to poor leadership, a lack of communication across the board and a delayed police response as contributing factors.

Councilmembers say there should be protocols in place, interagency communication and coordination with communities, and accountability measures.
