BALTIMORE, Md. — A man suspected of robbing an Upper Fells Point fast-food restaurant last night was shot by a city police officer during a struggle for the suspect's gun a few blocks from the robbery scene, a Police Department spokeswoman said.

Moments before the shooting, two other police officers were chasing the suspect on foot.

About 7 p.m., Southeastern District Officer Modesto A. Olivio Jr., a seven-year member of the force on patrol in his cruiser near the 1900 block of Gough St., saw the man being chased while keeping one hand in his waistband as if armed, said Officer Nicole Monroe, the spokeswoman.
