Man Shot After Allegedly Pulling Gun on Baltimore Police

The incident happened Saturday night in the 400 block of East Lorraine Avenue.

A man was shot twice by Baltimore police Saturday night, after he allegedly pointed a gun at officers, a police spokesman said.

Spokesman Anthony Guiglielmi said the nonfatal shooting occurred in the 400 block of Lorraine Avenue around 10 p.m.

The man, who has not yet been identified, was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he is currently in stable condition.

Gugielmi said two officers from the police department's violent crime impact section were in an unmarked police cruiser when they "witnessed an individual who exhibited the signs of an armed person."

The officers got out of their car to approach the man, but he ran into a house, withdrew a gun and pointed it at the two officers, who then shot the man in the waist and leg.

Guglielmi said a semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the scene.

No other information on the suspect was immediately available.

So.....Let me get this straight, Man "alledgedly" points gun at Officers, Officer, shoots suspect in waist an leg. Last month, 7/31/12, Officers called to the scene, Officer in Distress, Officers enter the house of Jonathan Blankenship with guns drawn. Shoot Jon not once in the chest, fatally killing an unarmed man, but shot him again, alledgedly grazing his head. So a man points a gun an is wounded, a man fights with an Officer and is killed. But, oh by way the, man, you'll be okay, you'll be okay!! Jon was unarmed, just got off from work, carpet knife in the sheath, on the kitchen table. Let's talk about that.
