BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Authorities have identified a man who led police on a pursuit and shot at several people in West Baltimore Friday.

City police identified the suspect as 30-year-old Mausean Vittorio Quran Carter of Northwest Baltimore.

Police say Carter was wanted in a triple shooting and was spotted by police on Fulton Avenue. The man then took off and reportedly went on a shooting rampage.

The man fired shots as he drove through the city, shooting a man in the leg on North Avenue and shooting a person in the upper body who was in a vehicle. Officials say the passenger went into cardiac arrest and is in critical condition.

One officer was injured during the pursuit and is receiving treatment at a local hospital.

The suspect was arrested in the 1800 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway.

A police officer ran to the car when it finally came to a stop at an intersection. The officer pulled the driver out and wrestled him to the ground.

Baltimore Police Department spokesperson T.J. Smith said the 30-year-old suspect may be connected to a triple shooting Thursday night that left one person dead in the 4400 Park Heights Avenue and a non-fatal shooting last week on Edmondson Avenue.

Two guns were recovered at the scene.

  1. OMG…….He is a black male under the age of 40……go figure

  2. And thanks to Omalley and his ilk, he can vote when he is paroled. Or get incarcerated in Virginia and vote now. Those gun laws really work.
