He was taken to Shock Trauma where he was pronounced dead by medical staff, according to authorities.

On Saturday night, police revealed that they did not know whether the boy was the intended target.

“We talk about weapons that are used in war, and should only be used in war, are being used on American streets—the streets of Baltimore,” said Commissioner Michael Harrison. “It is unnecessary, and it is absolutely wrong.”

The 12-year-old boy is the eighth juvenile to be killed in the city this year.
