Police: Man Shot By Officer Impersonators


BALTIMORE (AP) — Police say three officer impersonators kicked in the door of a northeast Baltimore home, tied up a couple, then shot the husband when he resisted.


Officials say the men announced “Police!” as they entered the home in the 1500 block of Medford Road around 5 a.m. Monday and bound the 32-year-old man and his wife using plastic flex handcuffs. The men were not wearing uniforms and did not display badges.


When the man realized his assailants were not officers, police say he resisted and was shot in the neck. He was treated and released.

Police say they do not have a motive but they are investigating it was a robbery or part of an ongoing dispute.
