BALTIMORE — A moving car containing three men fired upon Baltimore police before officers shot back, killing two of them outside a rowdy Fourth of July party, authorities disclosed yesterday as new details of Saturday's shooting emerged.
City police officers, who were in uniform and in a marked cruiser, arrived at a Southwest Baltimore union hall about 1:30 a.m. as people were leaving and someone reported gunshots. As the three men drove away, someone inside the car fired at police officers, causing the officers to return fire, according to Sterling Clifford, a police spokesman.
