_______Shoots 3rd Person. _______ Placed on Administrative Leave Until Investigation Is Concluded

Baltimore, City of Accountability:
A Baltimore police officer shot a suspect in the upper body about 8 p.m. Friday during a narcotics investigation in Northwest Baltimore, police said.

The shooting occurred at Pimlico Road and Garrison Avenue after two people got into a car and drove into an officer at the scene, said Anthony Gugliemi, a police spokesman. The officer was treated at a hospital and released.

A second officer fired at one of the suspects with a service revolver, Gugliemi said.

Police do not release the names of officers involved in shootings, under a policy adopted in January. The officer, 28, is being placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.[...]

The officer involved in the shooting has been on the police force since 2005 and had previously shot two others, said Detective Nicole Monroe, a police spokeswoman. In both cases, the shootings "were deemed justified," she said.

Pre no name law thoughts from me about why Baltimore residents don't trust cops. Needless to say, not telling us who the cops are that shoot at citizens hasn't helped much.
