Police: Victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, being treated at hospital
Three teenagers were injured Friday morning in a shooting outside Carver Vocational Technical High School in west Baltimore.
UPDATE (10 p.m.): Baltimore City police have charged two teenagers after the shooting.
Police said the teens are both 15-years-old. Both were shot during the incident.
At around 7:50 a.m., a 15-year-old male was taken to the school by his parents in order to assault someone. Both the parents and the 15-year-old participated in the assault, in which the teen pistol-whipped the unidentified victim.
When the teen fled, he encountered a 15-year-old Carver student at the front of the school. The assault suspect and the Carver student both began shooting. Both 15-year-olds and an uninvolved 16-year-old Carver student were shot, police said. A third student took one of the guns and fled the scene.
All five people involved, including the two parents and the third student, were taken into police custody. Charges for the parents are pending.
ORIGINAL STORY (8:40 a.m.): City police confirmed a shooting outside the school at Presstman and North Bentalou streets around 7:50 a.m. Police said officers arrived at the scene within minutes of the call and began treating the wounded and searching for a shooter.
The shooting took place in the plaza leading to the school’s front door.
“I was at the park with my all my friends, and it was, ‘pop, pop, pop.’ I said, ‘What? We got to go,'” a Carver student told 11 News.
Acting Deputy Police Commissioner Kevin Jones said two teenage students were injured and taken to a hospital. Jones said a third teenager went to a hospital on their own. Police said the injured victims include two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old.
“All three victims are in non-life-threatening condition at University Hospital,” Jones said. “This is an active crime scene, it’s still early in the investigation as of right now. Crime lab is on the scene.”
As part of their investigation, police said they hope to gather video from surveillance and school system cameras along Presstman Street.
Jones said the shooter fled east on Presstman Street. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-396-2477 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.
In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Baltimore City Public Schools said: “We are aware of an incident at Carver this morning. We’re working with Baltimore Police Department and will share further details when we can. Parents/guardians and families are advised not to go to the school at this time. Please wait for further instructions. The families of the students injured have been notified. All students are inside and the campus is secure.”
No further information was immediately available.
School police put the campus on lockdown, which remained in effect through the 9 a.m. hour.
“We should be very clear: the families of the victims have already been communicated with, so if there are families of Carver students, they should know that there child is here and fine and safe,” Chief of Schools John Davis said.
City Schools said they were informed of the shooting and sent a robocall to parents, but apparently, not all of them received the call.
“I called my daughter and asked her was she OK. She said as soon as she walked through the door, she heard the shots,” a parent told 11 News. “I said, ‘OK, I am here.’ (There was) no school call. I didn’t get a phone call saying this XYZ happened, nothing.”
City Schools posted shortly before 9 a.m. on X that students were safe inside the school building. WBAL-TV 11 News crews at the location observed parents and students arriving at the school as well as leaving the campus.
Carver dismissed students at 10:30 a.m.
Almost a dozen school buses arrived to take students home, as some parents anxious to see their children weren’t willing to wait.
“I think he’s very frightened because his text was kind of like, ‘Are you coming to get me?'” said Rochelle Cole, a parent. “I just want to get my eyes on him and my arms on him, give him a hug, make sure he’s OK.”
All afterschool activities have been canceled, and Carver’s football game has been postponed.

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott posted a statement on X, saying: “We are closely monitoring the shooting at Carver H.S. this morning and are working with the Baltimore police Baltimore City Schools. We will continue to share details as they become available. We are standing with the entire Carver community as we grapple with this incident.”
The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement posted a statement on X, saying: “MONSE stands ready to support our partners at Baltimore City Public Schools, the Mayor’s Office of Children and Family Success, BPD, the Carver community, and — most importantly — the victims of this morning’s shooting and their families. It must never be normal for our young people to have to face and overcome trauma and violence in their daily lives. They deserve to travel to and from school safely, without fear of being shot. Today’s event underscores the importance of continuing our work in partnership with our fellow agencies and community-based organizations to prioritize the needs of our city’s youth and develop comprehensive solutions to ensure that they can grow up in a safe and nurturing environment.”
Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby released a statement, saying, in part: “Our hearts are with the two people who were shot and their families. The City Council and I are praying for a speedy and full recovery. There are no words that can be conveyed to those who have witnessed a loved one being shot, but too often in this city we find ourselves still trying to find those words. No resident in any corner of our city should feel unsafe going to school in the morning.”
Baltimore City Councilman James Torrence, D-District 7, posted a statement on X, saying: “I am aware of the double-shooting outside my beloved Carver Vo-Tech High School this morning. The mayor’s office and BPD are actively communicating developments with myself and community members. Please keep the victims, school and community in your prayers. You can submit a tip to 1-866-7LOCKUP.”
