VIDEO: Gunman Opens Fire on Crowd at Candlelight Vigil in West Baltimore

A gunman opened fire minutes into a vigil Monday evening for a homicide victim in West Baltimore, wounding five people, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Four women and one man were shot, police said, before the gunman ran away. The crowd scattered into the North Avenue traffic; it was about 6:30 p.m. The five victims, shot in their legs and feet, one woman grazed in her stomach, were all expected to survive.

"I thought it was balloons bursting," said Keith Bailey, a florist across the street. "When I looked up, I saw people running. It was hard to see."

"Imagine a crowd of 20 to 30 people and gunshots rang out — pandemonium," police spokesman Donny Moses said.

The vigil was for Doreen Scofield's 24-year-old son, who was killed Sunday.

"We only wanted to celebrate my son, and they're shooting at us," said Scofield, whose family escaped without injury. "What else is it you want? What else do you want? You got my son ... and you're still shooting at us because we have a candlelight vigil? When will it end?"
