BALTIMORE Baltimore police said yesterday that information from neighborhood residents enabled them to quickly find and arrest a 26-year-old East Baltimore man who they believe opened fire on a police cruiser and wounded two officers.

"From the beginning we were getting very good cooperation from local residents helping their Police Department to identify the suspect and recover evidence," said acting Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III at a brief news conference yesterday. "When we get [cooperation] the results speak for themselves."

Mayor Sheila Dixon echoed that sentiment. "Community engagement is so important," she said. "I believe that citizens are recognizing that this is a partnership. No matter where they live, they want to have safe environments."
