Man wielding 2 knives shot and injured by Baltimore police

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police officers shot a man in the leg Saturday morning after he charged them with a weapon resembling a machete and another knife, officials said.

The man was taken in stable condition a few hours later to a local hospital, Baltimore Police Commissioner Richard Worley said during a news conference at the scene.

Worley said officers were conducting routine patrols in a southwest Baltimore neighborhood when they encountered a naked man walking down the street. The man, whose name has not been released, ran into a nearby business and barricaded himself in a back room, Worley said.

He said the man threw an unidentified liquid at the officers when they first tried to enter the building, then charged at them during their second attempt. Police fired at least one shot after an officer was cut in the face, Worley said. The officer’s injuries were minor.

Worley said authorities were still processing the “homemade devices” they found in an apartment above the business where the man apparently lived.

“It was a very intense situation,” he said, praising the officers’ actions in dealing with someone who was “obviously suffering from some sort of behavioral crisis.”
