BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A suspect is shot as agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Baltimore Police arrest what they call a “gang of armed robbers.”

Pat Warren reports officers and agents swooped in on the alleged gang on Clipper Road under the Jones Falls Expressway.

For three weeks, ATF and Baltimore Police have been tracking a gang of six suspected armed robbers.

“These were very violent individuals who intended to do some serious harm today,” Special Agent Marino Vidoli, an ATF Baltimore field officer, said.

With information that the gang was going to commit an armed robbery on Thursday, agents and officers closed in.

“Four of the individuals in a vehicle deliberately attempted to run over officers and agents. One of the agents, who was in fear of his life, and the other agents and officers who were around him, fired one round from his weapon at the driver of the vehicle who was attempting to run him over, striking him once in the right shoulder blade,” Marino said.

The getaway car rammed two police vehicles before it stopped. Officers recovered six weapons and a bulletproof vest.

“Obviously, a clear indication of what these individuals were going to do today,” Marino said.

The ATF is offering no details about the investigation and has not said what led them to the Clipper Mill location.

The suspect shot is expected to recover. All six suspects face federal charges.
