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.
