BALTIMORE, MD.  — Tonight, Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young released the following statement in response to a police involved shooting in the 1000 block of Light Street:

“Earlier tonight, a brave member of the Baltimore Police Department was shot in the line of duty. The officer is currently being treated at Maryland Shock Trauma for non-life threatening injuries. This officer put their life on the line for the residents of our City. The level of violence on our streets is completely unacceptable and won't be tolerated. Our public safety officials, and in particular our police officers, deserve our gratitude and thanks for placing themselves in harm's way each and every day. I have been in constant contact with Commissioner Michael Harrison, and we are both thankful to the men and women of the Baltimore Police Department.”
