Maryland ABC affiliate WJZ reported recently that a rash of Baltimore shootings is now under police investigation. In one incident on April 16, two men were shot and wounded. Both men were taken to Sinai Hospital, where one, who had been shot in the head, was pronounced dead upon arrival. The other, who suffered injuries to his back, remains in critical condition at Sinai.
Another shooting the same night resulted from a botched home invasion. Two men attempting to enter a home were confronted by the 23-year-old resident, who was shot in the incident. The 23-year-old was taken to Johns Hopkins, where he was pronounced dead. Police have made one arrest in that Maryland violent crime case.
Later that same night, a 30-year-old man was shot during an argument outside a liquor store. The shooter remains at large, while the victim is expected to recover.
People arrested during the investigation of a criminal case remain innocent until proven guilty. An arrest does not mean that the person arrested has committed any crime. Arrested individuals have a number of constitutional rights during their arrest and investigation, including the right to remain silent as well as the right to choose an attorney who will work hard to ensure that police respect their constitutional rights during the investigation.
