BALTIMORE - A Baltimore City police officer exchanged gun fire with a man late Friday night after the officer interrupted another shooting.
According to police, the officer was on a foot patrol in the 2200 block of Jefferson Street when he saw a man shooting at a 30-year-old man. The officer drew his gun and ordered the man to drop his weapon at which point the man turned the gun on the officer and fired. The officer returned fire, but the suspect ran and got into a silver car and drove away. It is unclear if the suspect was hit.
Police said the victim also fled on a scooter, but was found later in the 400 block of Collington Avenue. He was taken to an area hospital where he is in critical condition from several gunshot wounds.
Police don’t have a suspect or a motive in the shooting.
