BALTIMORE (AP) -- Baltimore police say four men were shot while they were sitting on steps in west Baltimore.

The shooting occurred about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday on North Carrollton Avenue. Officers say the men were outside a home when they were approached by at least one person with a gun.

The men were taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Baltimore has struggled with street violence this summer. Since June 21, there have been more than 40 shootings and 16 homicides. Tuesday's shooting occurred less than a mile from Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's public safety walk Monday night.
