Seven people were shot during a cookout Sunday afternoon in West Baltimore, police said.

The cookout was on 2500 Edmonson Ave, police said. While it was near a Baptist church in the area, it has not been confirmed if it was connected in any way.

One of the seven victims has died, police said.

Councilman Brandon Scott tweeted shortly after it was confirmed, saying in part, “Must be better. All of us,”

Commissioner Michael Harrison said a man “began firing indiscriminately into the crowd, striking a number of people.” He said investigators believe “there was a second shooter, perhaps firing back, but it’s still unknown, perhaps firing back at the perpetrator.” The initial gunman fled the scene.

This is a developing story. Updates will be provided as they become available.
