BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say a man has died after exchanging gunfire with a police officer responding to a domestic violence call.
Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says police responded to a call Saturday around 1:40 a.m. reporting that a man had shot his wife in East Baltimore. When officers arrived in the 1800-block of Hope St. they found the man armed with a gun.
Guglielmi says the man was combative with police and confronted officers. He says it appears several shots were fired from both sides. It was not clear if the man died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound or a shot fired by a police officer.
The condition of the man’s wife was not clear. Police expected to have more information Saturday afternoon.
