BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A tense moment was captured by a resident on Wednesday after a police-involved shooting in northeast Baltimore left two officers injured.
The officers, who were assigned to the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, were working to serve a felony arrest warrant for attempted murder around noon at the Garden Village Apartment in the 5900 block of Radecke Avenue when the shooting happened, officials said.
The governor’s office confirmed that the two injured officers are with Baltimore City and Baltimore County Police. One officer was shot in the leg and another officer was shot in the stomach.

“One of the officers got shot, he went down, and of course I seen a suspect, he was shot up to,” a neighbor told WJZ. “Then another officer got shot in the leg, and he picked the other officer up and put him in a pickup truck. The other guy came in an ambulance and they picked him up and put him in an ambulance. The other officer got shot in the leg I believe. It’s chaos, it’s crazy.”
One of the officers injured in the shooting was released from Shock Trauma Wednesday evening. The other officer is in stable condition, but is expected to spend a few nights at the hospital while he recovers.
