Baltimore Officer Shot While Trying To Disperse Large Party

Baltimore, MD – A Baltimore police officer was shot Sunday morning while trying to disperse a large party.

The incident occurred in the 2300 block of Winchester Street at around 3:14 a.m., according to WJZ.

Police were called to a large party in a parking lot.

While officers were on scene, an SUV sped into the parking lot with a damaged tire.

The officers contacted the driver before realizing he was armed. There was a struggle and one of the officers was shot in the torso.

The wounded officer stayed in the fight and helped take the suspect into custody, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Police Commissioner Michael Harrison praised the officers for taking the suspect into custody without injuring him.

“Even though our officer was shot, with the help of another officer, the two of them were still able to subdue this subject and take him into custody without injuring that suspect,” Harrison said. “We are certainly proud of their actions today.”

The wounded officer was rushed to Shock Trauma where he underwent surgery. He is now in stable condition.

The unnamed officer is a 20-year department veteran and a member of the National Guard.

Commissioner Harrison reiterated that despite the protests throughout the country, Baltimore PD is will working to keep people safe.

“This speaks to the courage and bravery of our officers during very tough and tumultuous times,” Harrison said. “In spite of what’s going on here and every where in the country the members of the Baltimore Police Department continue to serve, continue to protect and continue to do what is necessary to keep the people of Baltimore safe.”
