A Baltimore man has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and other counts in a May double shooting that injured two squeegee workers who had been cleaning windshields at intersections for money, according to court documents.

The incident is the latest example of violence involving the workers, mostly teens from low-income neighborhoods who have been a long-running subject of debate in the city.

According to charging documents obtained by The Baltimore Sun and other local media outlets, the shooting took place a day after Zhamiel Dixon's mother reported to police that two squeegee workers had scammed her by transferring $2,200 to their accounts after she handed over her cellphone for an app payment in lieu of cash.

Police, who reported other cases of similar scams over the summer, did not say whether the gunshot victims are suspected of involvement in the scheme, the newspaper reported.
