BALTIMORE – A Baltimore police officer shot in his hand during a struggle with a man has been released from the hospital.
Commissioner Kevin Davis said at a news conference Thursday that the officer was shot Wednesday, the same day a Baltimore detective killed in the line of duty was being laid to rest.
Davis says officers approached 35-year-old Allen Hosea Johnson Jr. in a Baltimore neighborhood when he was acting suspiciously, and ordered him to show his hands. The struggle between the man and an officer ensued.
Davis say police shocked the man with a stun gun, and he was treated at a hospital. He is charged with attempted murder and other offenses.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Johnson.
