A Baltimore police officer was injured when he was struck as one of three men being arrested on drug charges sped away from a traffic stop yesterday afternoon on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in West Baltimore, police said.
Officers chased the car, a Ford Crown Victoria, south on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Russell and Hamburg streets, near M&T Bank Stadium, where an officer said he saw a man reach for what he thought was a weapon. Sgt. Melvin Russell said the officer fired one shot at the car, striking the hood, but did not hit anyone inside.
