A tragic incident occurred at a block party in Baltimore on Saturday night, when gunfire erupted and left two people dead and 28 others wounded. The police are still investigating the motive and the identity of the shooters, who fled the scene after the attack.

The block party was organized by a local community group to celebrate the Fourth of July and to promote peace and unity in the neighborhood. According to witnesses, hundreds of people were enjoying music, food and fireworks when shots rang out around 11 p.m. Some people thought it was part of the fireworks display, until they saw people falling to the ground and blood everywhere.

The victims ranged in age from 17 to 59, and included both men and women. Two of them, a 27-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, were pronounced dead at the hospital. The other 28 were treated for various injuries, some of them critical. The police have not released the names of the victims or the suspects, pending notification of family members and further investigation.

The mayor of Baltimore, Brandon Scott, condemned the violence and expressed his condolences to the families of the victims. He also urged anyone with information about the incident to come forward and cooperate with the police. He said that the city would not tolerate such senseless acts of violence that destroy lives and communities.

The block party was one of several events that took place in Baltimore over the weekend to celebrate Independence Day and to honor the victims of gun violence. The organizers of the event said that they were devastated by what happened, but that they would not give up on their mission to bring positive change to their neighborhood. They said that they hoped that this tragedy would inspire more people to join their efforts to end the cycle of violence and to create a safer and more peaceful environment for everyone.
