At least four people were shot, including a 10-year-old boy, in East Baltimore Monday night, according to a police spokesman.

The boy, two men ages 28 and 29, and a fourth victim all suffered non-fatal gunshot wounds to their legs and were taken to an area hospital, said police spokesman Agent Donny Moses. Moses did not have details on the fourth victim. All had been sitting on steps in the block when they were hit, he said.

The shooting occurred just before 9:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of East Hoffman Street, in the Broadway East neighborhood.

"The streets are crowded with people as it's hot and Memorial Day," Moses said.

Police have not yet identified suspects or motives, he said.
