Baltimore is a sad place to be these days, and police say that it got sadder last week when a 16-month old baby was shot and killed. The baby’s shooting wounded his father and police are saying that it was a setup.
Two men, Cornell Harvey, 26, and Eddie Tarver, 20, have been charged with first and second degree murder in the shooting death of Carter Scott. The young child’s father, Rashaw Scott, was also injured in the shooting. He is in critical condition and may not survive the attack.
The father and son were sitting in their car when the shooting took place. Three men wearing latex gloves shot at the car 16 times. The baby was found unresponsive and pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Hospital an hour later.
The boy’s father went to the Maryland Schock Trauma center, where he received surgery. He said that before the shooting, Harvey called to have him pick him up so they could hang out together.
After Scott arrived, Harvey told him to drive a few blocks away so he could talk to a girl. His son was in the back seat.
That is when the attack took place.
Scott says that he saw three men shooting at the car. Police in the area heard gunshots and came into the apartment complex. That’s where officers saw a man with a hoodie and a white long sleeve shirt shooting at the car.
After chasing Tarver for six miles, they caught him with patrol cars and a helicopter. Police have leads on other suspects.
This was the first of 12 shootings that took place in Baltimore on Memorial Day alone.
