Teens shooting teens: How do we break the cycle in Baltimore?

February 12, 2024

Last year, 44 people under the age of 20 — most of them teenagers; at least one a toddler — were killed in the city; 151 more were shot and, thankfully, survived. It was the most dangerous year for young people here in at least a dozen years.
