3 to be charged in Inner Harbor shooting

By Washington Post Editors

Baltimore police say they plan to charge three young men, including two brothers, after a shooting at the tourist-friendly Inner Harbor.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the shooting took place around midnight Saturday after a dispute between two groups of young men. Guglielmi says the gunman, his brother and a third young man were displaying gang colors. He says they didn't know the victim, who had no gang affiliation. At least five shots were fired, and the 19-year-old victim was shot in the left hand.

He says 19-year-old Keiron Holly will be charged with attempted murder. His brother, 18-year-old Dominick Holly, and 19-year-old Kesmond Lewis will face conspiracy and handgun charges. The teens were arrested after an exchange of gunfire with police in which no one was shot.

For all of you who talk about the District what do you think about this? Three 18-19 year old thugs not only shot someone at the Inner Harbor but got into a shootout with the police.

The Inner Harbor is hardly tourist-friendly as this story says. Downtown Baltimore is a seething hotbed of criminal activity and a police department notorious for its lethargy and inaction. I used to go there regularly, but tourists attracted thugs and the street crime has become intolerable.

Those aged 18-20 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. The Associated Press broke that rule by calling the young men who participated in the Baltimore shooting "teen". It's good that the young men have been arrested for discharging a gun at the Inner Harbor. With the National Aquarium in that part of Baltimore, security is important.

The police ought to be retrained to improve their shooting skills. Why did they miss?

I've learned that it's always prudent to stay out of the cities and far away from the thug culture. I like to live by the maxims of 'don't go looking for trouble, you'll find it' and 'don't be in the wrong place at the wrong time'. As attractive as some parts of the city may be, the thugs own it and the police can't be everywhere all the time. Usually, they show up in time to clean up the blood and arrest someone - if they're lucky enough to find a witness.

Wow, I doubt many of these posters really have ever been to the Baltimore Inner Harbor! It is hardly a scary place and is no more dangerous that any other tourist destination in the United States. The young men are thugs, thugs are not an exclusive of Baltimore. I live in Baltimore now and use to live in DC and the danger to the average citizen or tourist is about the same (and rather low).

BTW not all black kids are thugs, maybe that is were the confusion lays for some of these posters. Also, most of these posters have little to fear if they in fact dug a little deeper. Most of these crimes are gang on gang or youth on youth.

And one last thing, it might be worth noting that rural violent crime rates are going up while city violent crime rates are going down.

There was a shooting between some knucklehead teenagers at the Inner Harbor this time last year.

@rcc_2000 - are you kidding me? You have your head in the sand if you think that the inner harbor is safe. These MEN are thugs. To shoot someone for "staring"? Senseless crime by some senseless individuals.
5th highest crime rate in the country, higher-than-average rates of aggravated assault, burglary, robbery, and theft. This with the known fact that there are "irregularities" in the reporting of their crime statistics, so the rates are actually worse than reported. Especially rapes (read recent articles in the Sun). So far there have been 94 murders in bmore - on track with past years to stay in the top 10 (there is a nice utility on the Suns site to show you all the murders, also one on the City Paper - google for them)... I can't find statistics on attempted murders, but I can guarantee it is significantly higher. So good luck in the city, someone has to be proud to live there, they need to tax money from optimists like you since the thugs ARE scaring the tourists away!

ritabb0519, 94 homicides is well below the 2009 rate.

DC, PG County, most of Montgomery County and all the way up through Baltimore is a cesspool. Government employee cesspool. Nothing worse than a government town.

Same knuckleheads, different town.

3 uneducated and classless black "savages". I am fed up with the black on black BS. To the blacks that want to condone this type of violence and blame the white man for this, I am sick of you too.

Well maybe if you hicks stop flooding this country with all these guns we wouldn't have all these shootings. Nothing is going to change until it's the white kids dying in the streets everyday, and believe me that day is coming. You conservatives are nothing but a bunch of ignorant race hating fools and your plan to flood the cities with more guns is very transparent. But like that old saying what goes around comes around you day is coming, see you at the morgue.
