Baltimore police officers shot during traffic stop

By Washington Post Editors

Baltimore police say two officers have been shot during a traffic stop and they are in serious but stable condition. The suspected shooter was killed by return fire.

Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the shooting happened about 12:21 p.m. Sunday.
The officers had pulled over the suspected shooter for an unknown traffic offense. When the officers approached the car, the suspect pulled out a gun and shot one officer in the face and the other in the arm.

Police were able to return fire and the suspect died from his wounds. The names of the officers and the suspect were not immediately released.

I do not understand the last comment, Crackmore is disgrace, the "wire" is true, it shows you what happens when you have corruption in city hall, Mayor Dixon was a disgrace, she did nothing, the problem again, the problem in Baltimore and Philly you have stop the drugs and gangs, DC is doing a good job, Glenn Ivey is cleaning Prince Geoges County. Also, I notice homicides are increasing in New York City, not as bad as 20 years, but it higher than last year, DC is doing right homicides are down again, lower than last year, which was the lowest since 1966. DC is getting the thugs out and bring the taxpayer in. For the polictial leaders we are not anti-poor, no shame on a poor person or a poor family, but poorer people in gangs and sell drugs need to go the jail, same for illegal alliens, they bring drugs and gangs into your city too. You have keep crime out, you would lose your tax base, white and blacks with money in the city, you need to keep crime, drugs, and gangs. Mayor of Baltimore, if want to help the poor people and bring more jobs to Baltimore City, you need to put the thugs under jail, or excute drug dealers killers, and business and taxpayers will move back to your city. I notice Baltimore City is losing population. Yes you have problem in charm city.

Thank You officers for putting it on the line daily.

As I say. . you shoot at/a police officer, you do not deserve to survive the encounter, or make it to the station.
