One of the officers was hit in the upper thigh. One of the officers then returned the suspect’s fire, striking the suspect several times. Both were taken to Shock Trauma where the suspect died from his injuries.
“The message is clear — this violence has to stop, but the members of our police department are proactive and where they were supposed to be, doing what they were supposed to do, looking for a violent offender,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said.
Homicide detectives will take over the investigation, and an internal investigation will be conducted into the officers’ roles in the shooting.
