Police recovered handguns from two of the victims. Police have not released a motive for the shooting or identified the victims.

Earlier this month, Baltimore recorded its 200th homicide of the year. That reflects a dramatic rise: In 2014, the city saw 211 killings for the year.

The uptick comes after rioting in the spring over the death of Freddie Gray, the black man critically injured in police custody.
