Child shot in vehicle in SW Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Police are investigating after a 7-year-old girl was found shot in a vehicle Thursday afternoon in southwest Baltimore.

Taylor was found at Edmondson and Loudon avenues and is in critical and unstable condition at the hospital, said Baltimore police department spokesperson T.J. Smith.

The shooting was reported at about 3:30 p.m.

Two other people, an adult and another child, were also in the car but were not injured.

Smith said an officer was a block away, on Normandy, when he was informed of the incident.

Smith blamed the shocking shooting on "some cowards in the neighborhood."

"This is where even bad guys unite and get the person responsible for this," he said. "He should turn himself in."
