BALTIMORE (AP) — Detectives in Baltimore are investigating the death of a 5-year-old girl earlier this week as a homicide, police announced Wednesday as the city marked its 300th homicide this year.

Police say officers were called to a Northeast Baltimore home Monday for a report of an unresponsive 5-year-old girl.

Mayor Brandon Scott expressed his outrage as the city recorded the 300th homicide of the year.
