BALTIMORE, Md. — A man was killed and a Baltimore police officer was shot in the leg yesterday evening during a shootout just south of the Orangeville Industrial Area in East Baltimore, police said.

About 10:30 p.m., members of the citywide SWAT team on routine patrol were among police searching for a man who, for no apparent reason, had abandoned a vehicle and was eluding officers, said acting Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III.
