Officer Shot In Gunfight With Man Allowed To Escape After Trying To Kill 2 Cops

A Baltimore police officer was shot when officers encountered a suspect who had attempted to kill two police officers.

Baltimore, MD – The man authorities believe tried to kill two Baltimore police officers on Tuesday was fatally shot Wednesday night in an incident that left an officer wounded.

The prior incident began at about 1:16 a.m. on Aug. 27 when a silver car tried to run over a Baltimore police officer who was out of his vehicle conducting a traffic stop in the 2400-block of Reisterstown Road, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Another officer on patrol in the area spotted the suspect vehicle about three minutes later at an intersection in the 1500-block of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Police said that as the officer approached the silver car in his police car, the suspect jumped out of his car and opened fire on the officer with a handgun, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said the officer was able to back away in time to avoid being shot.

A 9mm shell casing was recovered later from the scene, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The driver fled and police pursued him through the city until a Baltimore police major ordered the officer to terminate the pursuit when it reached I-295, a six-lane highway that runs out of the city.

Officers continued searching for the suspect vehicle throughout the day, and at about 11 p.m., they spotted it, WBAL reported.

Chief Harrison said a large number of officers responded to the area, and there were two encounters between officers and the suspect that involved an exchange of gunfire.

Police first encountered the suspect at Fayette and North Caroline Streets and fired at him, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The suspect – later identified by police as 30-year-old Tyrone Domingo Banks – jumped back in his car and drove down Caroline Street with police right behind him.

Chief Harrison said officers opened fire on the suspect again when he stopped a block later, The Baltimore Sun reported.

More than 10 officers were involved in the incident and the chief said it wasn’t known how many had fired their weapons, WBAL reported.

The chief told reporters that it was not yet known whether Banks had fired on officers.

"That subject was in fact armed. There is a gun on the scene that we are recovering," Chief Harrison said.

A Baltimore officer was shot in the lower leg during one of the encounters.

The officer was transported to University of Maryland Medical Center Shock Trauma for treatment, WBAL reported.

The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police said the officer was released early Thursday morning, WBAL reported.

Chief Harrison said the suspect was transported to Johns Hopkins University Hospital where he died.

A female bystander was also injured during the incident, WBAL reported.

Police said she had been transported to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Officials said they didn’t know if she was wounded by gunfire or shrapnel, WBAL reported.

The officer-involved shooting in under investigation and Chief Harrison said investigators would be reviewing bodycam of the incident.

I see stories involving a few Hispanics , saw one Asian one time , since whites are ~75% then yes you see Caucasians ......but so many black criminal stories its almost uncanny. Heart goes out to those minority LEOs and citizens who just want to work, raise a family , earn a living ............but the disproportionate numbers of BMs causing criminal issues are almost unbelievable........Almost.

55%,most. There is absolutely no way 75% of the country is white.

you're right. According to the census, that number is 76.5%

Oh, and in case you want to deny it because you don't like the truthful and accurate answers, I'm even going to provide a source so you can look it up yourself. https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fact/table/US/PST045218

and just to be technical, that's including white Hispanics. for the white non-Hispanics, that number is 60%. So in either case, your still wrong.

Muslims and Middle Easterners also have to select "Caucasian", since they don't have a category on the census. Fun fact, the nation Iran's name came from a derivative of the word "Aryan."

If you take them out of the caucasian count as well, how many do you think are left?

Sigh. Being Muslim is a religion, not a race. There are white Muslims, black Muslims, Chinese Muslims, Indian Muslims, and any other race or ethnicity. Do you not understand the difference between a religion and a race? or are you really that ignorant?

I posted my numbers from a reputable source. Instead of pulling more shit out of your ass, why don't you post a credible source that supports your incorrect assertions?

Muslim is a religion and culture as well, just like being Jewish. Either way, middle easterners mark caucasian.

And what about Latinos who present white? Ted Cruz? Devin Nunes? Jeb Bush's son? Do you think they and the millions like them mark Latino or white on the census?

55%, tops.

Religion and culture are not races, regardless of what you think. And all those people you listed are white.... and Hispanic.... they are calculated in the census. 76.5% includes the Hispanic part; it's 60% if you exclude the Hispanic part.

According to the experts, you're still wrong, and off by about 16 million people....

55% tops. Plus with the trouble you people have and opioids killing hundreds a day going on like 2 years now, do you really think there are even that many?

I forgot when experts said whites will no longer be more than 50%. Was it within a decade, or 2?

Thank you for posting the link, that is interesting. Under the Race and Hispanic Origins, I hit the i (info button on the left) and it gave a breakdown of their meanings. Very cool, more people should check it out so they will know that Asian and others have their own categories. It is more than just black and white 😉

"........or are you really that ignorant?"

Yes, he is. Watch how fast he starts calling you a poo poo head or similar because he cannot keep up with the discussion and needs to show us all that he is "correct" and others are "wrong" . Debating with him won't help .

all of our statements are equally right (or wrong, depending on your point of view). That's why if I provide actual facts, based on data, I provide my source, so others can fact check me.

If an idiot refuses to believe facts are correct, because they go against their agenda, esp ones from a credible source, well, than there is nothing else to say, because it ends up being an exercise akin to teaching a pig to sing: it wastes your time and they aren't going to do it right anyway

Maybe "gutless" will be a legitimate defense in the civil liability trial against the pinhead that called off the original chase!

And that’s what happens when an administrator makes calls from his safe little office. Good job to the officers, glad their all safe, but it came at the expense of one officer getting injured. It’s not like the chase was for a blinker violation or busted tail light, it was for almost harming an officer. If he will do that he will do that to anyone who gets in his way. Glad this prick is dead, and his family better not try and sue (yeah right, they probably already got a lawyer)..... stay safe brothers and sisters, it’s obvious admin is trying to control things other than the budget, manpower and logistics.
