Hats off to the Southern District for an outstanding job in taking down three suspected Blood gang members and safeguarding a Baltimore family from violence.
At around 8pm on March 29th, BPD received a call for gun fire in the area of Baltic Ave and 5th Street. Upon arrival officers recovered numerous shell casings and discovered that a Ford Explorer was struck with several bullets. It was learned that the target of the shooting was intended for an area family.
Southern district crime suppression personnel immediately canvassed the Baltimore City & Anne Arundel County line (prior intelligence suggested that suspect(s) would proceed to this area and that they were driving in a Ford Crown Victoria.)
A vehicle matching this description was located in the on W. Meadows St. in Anne Arundel County by BPD crime suppression units. County police responded to the scene and three possible suspects were observed exiting out a maroon Crown Victoria, which was parked directly behind the suspect vehicle.
As a result of approaching these suspects, officers made a narcotics arrest and recovered three guns from the rear trunk of the maroon Crown Victoria.
1. .22 Cal Assualt Rifle(machine gun type).
2. 25 Cal Semi-Automatic handgun
3. 9MM Semi-Auto handgun
