BALTIMORE (AP/WJZ) — A Maryland police officer shot at a fleeing car as officers investigated gunfire around the city.
Baltimore Police said in a news release the officer-involved shooting happened Saturday night after police heard gunshots while conducting a drug investigation. Police said an 18-year-old man was shot and wounded by suspects.
Officers ran to the area where the shots were heard and encountered suspects in a vehicle attempting to flee. One of the officers fired his gun. It’s not clear if any of the suspects were hit, and body camera footage is being reviewed.
