BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A police-involved shooting in Baltimore City is under investigation.

Just after midnight Thursday, officers responded to a call for an armed person in the 1500-block of East Lanvale Street.

Police say the suspect engaged officers and reached into his waistband. One officer fired, but didn’t hit him.

The suspect then ran up a block to Caroline Street and that’s when a second officer encountered him and shot him one time in the leg.

The suspect was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  He is in stable condition.

A handgun was recovered at the scene.

Richard Jenkins Jr., 25, was later charged with firearms violations, assault and reckless endangerment.

The officers are on administrative leave.
