BALTIMORE, Md. — Police chased and shot a man after he slashed a police officer in the face yesterday afternoon in West Baltimore, police spokesman Troy Harris said.

The incident started about 3 p.m. when four undercover officers who had been investigating drug activity on Normount Court saw a man acting suspiciously at Belmont Avenue and Bloomingdale Road. When they approached, the man pulled out a blade and cut one of the officers, leaving a deep gash in his face, Harris said. The four officers chased him on foot. As they closed in, the man tried to swipe the same officer with the blade a second time.
