The victim went to an area hospital where doctors scanned them and found no gunshot wounds but did treat them for a laceration to the head.

This shooting comes after a week of concern from area business owners and residents about the violence and rowdy crowds.

Several Fells Point businesses owners signed a letter to the city this week saying they would withhold their tax payments until the city and the police department address the ongoing concerns.

Mayor Brandon Scott responded by organizing a town hall meeting Thursday night were residents and business owners could voice their concerns and talk with city officials and the police commissioner.
