4-Year-Old Boy Shot While Watching Fireworks

BALTIMORE (WJZ) – After the Fourth of July fireworks show ended, violence erupted all around the area.  It left a child shot, a man dead and police using all their resources to get control.

Andrea Fujii reports police are combing through footage from more than 90 city surveillance cameras, trying to put as many faces to crimes as they can.

Minutes after the celebratory fireworks stopped, two separate incidents of violence sent police scrambling.

First, a man was stabbed in the neck after arguing with a group of people outside the McCormick and Schmick's Restaurant in the 700-block of Eastern Avenue. He died.

Then, across the way at Pratt and Light Streets, a 4-year-old was shot in the leg with his parents standing next to him. He is now in stable condition.

Earlier in the night, police rushed to break up a fight near the visitors center, as the song "God Bless America" played in the background.

The violence came just hours after police commissioner Fred Bealefeld expressed confidence that his several hundred officers would be on top of the situation, keeping visitors safe.

"You're going to see many, many uniformed police officers," he said.

Bealefeld says the number of officers at the Inner Harbor this year were comparable to the numbers there last year.

Still, Bealefeld said he was worried about what might happen when the fireworks ended.

"This is one of our principal concerns because after 9:30 and the fireworks are over, the event is substantially over.  We want people to get home safely," said Bealefeld.

Police say they have a suspect photo from the stabbing that they will release later Tuesday.
