At 1435 hours Engine 83 was alerted to the 7900 Blk of Suiter Way, on "the East Side" of Seat Pleasant, for a report of one shot. Details were sketchy but units arrived with police to find a victim shot. The patient was treated while the engine crew awaited the arrival of EMS units. Once they arrived the patient was quickly loaded and taken to a nearby trauma center by A5 and M26 as a Category A trauma. Police continue to investigate and Engine 83 returned to service in about 40 minutes.
