BALTIMORE - Several raids targeting suspects believed to be involved in drug and gun crimes took place throughout west Baltimore Thursday.
At least four locations were targeted as a part of an ATF Violent Crime Impact Team (VCIT) investigation in conjunction with Baltimore Police. It was an investigation that spanned at least several months.
The details of the investigation and arrests made are still unclear at this point. Further information will come from the Baltimore City State's Attorneys Office.
VCIT is comprised of federal law enforcement agents from the ATF, accompanied by Baltimore Police Department investigators. The team studies spikes in violent crime, works to define origin and then attempts to take down what they believe to be the root of the problem.
