Baltimore - A walk along Pratt St. at the Inner Harbor will take you to the shops, restaurants, and the boats setting sail. It's a tourist destination, and now it's the scene of one of several weekend shootings in Baltimore.
"Now in the daytime there's lots of people around. Nighttime is when everything comes out," said Adam Gamble, visiting from Lebanon, PA.
It was shortly after midnight when police say two groups of teenagers exchanged words before the most serious threat.
"The shooter in this case said the most disturbing part of this case, said essentially I feel like killing someone," said Baltimore Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld.
Police say the group with the victim tried to run before Keiron Holly started firing.
He hit the victim in the left hand. The man was taken to the hospital and later released.
Police think the shooting could be gang related, so they have not identified the victim. Holly's brother, Dominick Holly, and Kesmond Lewis were also arrested.
The group got on a city bus. Officers caught up with them several blocks away. One man showed a gun to police, who fired at him but missed.
Commissioner Bealefeld is fired up.
"They shouldn't have acted like jerks at the Harbor, a couple young men passing by and the exchange of glances led to that outcome," said Bealefeld.
Back at the Inner Harbor on Sunday evening, we spotted R&B singer Keith Sweat among the visitors. Known for his love songs, we asked for his take on the weekend violence.
"Shooting a person or killing a person is not the answer to anything. Violence has never been the answer to anything. So when people get that in their head and understand that, I think this world will be a whole lot better off," Sweat said.
Last August, hundreds of people were inside the Light St. pavilion at the Inner Harbor, when a shooting injured two suspected gang members.
Now on weekends, over 60 police officers are stationed at the Inner Harbor.
There are more than 100 cameras in the area.
Baltimore police will get help from Maryland State Police and other agencies on the Fourth of July, with 300 officers on patrol, hoping to avoid another shooting in a place where visitors want to enjoy.
"I'm comfortable in my surroundings, and I don't think it will happen all the time,"
said Yolanda Cook.
The three suspects have been charged. Keiron Holly is being held on attempted first degree murder. His brother and Kesmond Lewis are charged with conspiracy and handgun violations.
