A Maryland state trooper suffered life-threatening injuries yesterday when police closing in on a robbery suspect traded shots with the man - a recently released drug offender who had previously been accused of ramming a police car to avoid arrest.
Tfc. Eric D. Workman underwent two surgeries after being shot during a pre-dawn raid at a Baltimore County home. He was in critical condition early today in the intensive care unit at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
