BALTIMORE — Authorities are investigating a shooting in Baltimore that left a police sergeant wounded.

Baltimore police say the officer was taken to R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center after being shot Thursday afternoon in northeast Baltimore. Police did not immediately release any other details.

Gov. Larry Hogan issued a tweet asking people to keep the officer in their prayers as he fights for his life.

Hogan added that thoughts and prayers alone are not enough, and that state and local leaders must join together to get violent shooters off the streets.

A woman who claimed to witness the shooting told local media outlets that the officer was in plain clothes and that it appeared he was targeted in a robbery attempt.
