Baltimore City police are currently investigating the sixth homicide of a young person this year. 16-year-old Izaiah Carter, who was a student at Patterson High School, was shot and later died from his injuries on Monday.

The perpetrator is still at large, and officers were dispatched to Joseph E. Lee Park, located in the 5900 block of Pratt Street, at approximately 2 p.m. when they received reports of the shooting.

Carter was found at the park with a gunshot wound to the head and was rushed to the hospital, where he passed away.

Baltimore Police are offering a reward of up to $8,000 for any information that could lead to an arrest in connection with the deadly shooting.

According to the police, multiple witnesses reported hearing gunshots and observing several individuals fleeing in different directions.

At the scene, several backpacks were found lying on the ground. Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison has stated that it is essential to determine who was with the student, why they were in the park prior to the school’s release, and whether they witnessed or have any knowledge of the incident so that those responsible can be held accountable.
