Baltimore Mayor Jack Young is begging city residents to obey curfews and stop shooting each other so hospital beds can be reserved for Chinese coronavirus patients.
“I want to reiterate how completely unacceptable the level of violence is that we have seen recently,” Young said during a press conference on Wednesday. “We will not stand for mass shootings and an increase in crime.”
Young addressed the town after seven people were shot on Tuesday night in a Madison Park neighborhood, all of whom survived and are now receiving medical attention. There are currently five known cases of Chinese coronavirus in the city thus far.
“For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we’re not going to tolerate it,” Young said. “We’re going to come after you and we’re going to get you.”
