    Talking 2 suspects attempt to rob an off duty Officer....Officer says, I dont think so

    An off-duty Baltimore police officer shot two men after they attempted to rob him in South Baltimore early yesterday, police said.
    The officer was walking to his home at 3:40 a.m. when four men jumped out of an alley near Gittings Street and Battery Avenue, said police spokesman Troy Harris.

    One man held a knife to the officer's neck and demanded money. The officer, who was not in uniform, fought the man off then shot him in the upper torso, Harris said.

    The other men ran away. One jumped in a van and drove it directly toward the officer, who fired shots at him, police said.

    The two suspects the officer shot were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The one who was shot in the torso was in critical condition. The van driver suffered graze wounds to the head, police said.

    Police were still searching for the other two suspects. They have not released the identities of the hospitalized suspects or the officer. The officer has been placed on administrative duty pending an investigation, Harris said.

    Robbery of Off-duty Officer

    Lets hear one for the good guys!

    Let this be a lesson. You would be supprised on how many Police Officers DON"T carry off duty.

    When I first got to my agency, I noticed that a few left their weapon in their locker. When I told them this kind a dumb, they looked at wonder at me. One even said that his wife wouldn't let him in the house with his pistol. When I gave some of them a scenero about something occurring while off dyth, they told me that it wasn't their problem, they were "off-duty."

    Oh well, there are those who are POLICE OFFICERS and those who just come to work.

    Great job! Hopefully that'll make them think twice the next time they go to rob someone!

    A big "DOH!" for the crims and a hip hooray for the good guy.

    Best not pick on me off duty, else one will have to give them a severe talking to.

    That's just disgusting.

    That officer should be ashamed of his actions.


    ... I mean one grazing would to the head? No suspects dead on scene? And what's up with the other 2 getting away?

    Looks like that officer needs more range time.

    I promise you one thing, I bet they'll think twice before they rob another person.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Baltimore is a scary city. Have 2 friends that are officers there. When I went to visit they took me on a 'ghetto tour' which was pretty frightening.

    Good job to the officer!!!!
