Md. cop injured after traffic stop, shooting

Two officers opened fire when the suspect accelerated toward one of them


CAMBRIDGE, Md. — Police are looking for a man who drove his car toward two Cambridge police officers during a traffic stop, injuring one of them. The officers opened fire on the man, and it's not known whether he was wounded.

Maryland state police are investigating the shooting, which occurred early Sunday morning on a roadside in Cambridge. Police say the two officers pulled over a pickup truck driven by 39-year-old Demetrice Demby of Cambridge.

While the officers were inspecting the car with a police dog, police say Demby accelerated toward one of them. Both officers opened fire.

The first officer had to dive out of the way of the oncoming truck and suffered injuries including a broken ankle.

Police say Demby drove off and abandoned the truck a few blocks away.
