The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra said today that it has the results of an audit looking into the organization’s finances, and there is “substantial uncertainty about the BSO’s ability to continue as a going concern.”

A man who brought a gun into an Old Goucher methadone clinic has died, and a Baltimore Police Department sergeant is in stable condition after an exchange of gunfire this morning inside the medical center in the 2100 block of Maryland Avenue, police said.

A man with gunshot wounds who was found in a different part of the building has also died. Police Commissioner Michael Harrison, who said he’s viewed all the body-worn camera footage from the incident, told reporters that officers only fired at the man who brought a gun into the clinic after he started shooting at them.

A female worker at the clinic sustained non-life threatening injuries during the incident, Harrison said.
