BALTIMORE (AP) - Police say a robbery investigation led officers to the East Baltimore of an anti-violence program, where seven guns and drugs were found.

Interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at a news conference Tuesday that ballistics tests are being done on the weapons to see if they are linked to shell casings found at the scenes of more than a dozen shootings in Baltimore in a week.

The program, called Safe Streets, is funded under the city health department. Ex-felons work in the community to prevent violence.

Davis says two suspects in a robbery Monday ran into the Safe Streets office on Monument Street. Nine people were arrested at the site, including two employees who officials say were fired.

The Safe Streets program on Monument Street has been suspended.
