BALTIMORE, MD. (Friday, September 30, 2022) - Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement in response to the officer involved shooting that took place earlier today in the 1100 block of E. Chase Street.

"This afternoon, Baltimore police officers responded to a home in the 1100 block of E. Chase Street for a behavioral health crisis. Upon entering the home and being told by a relative that a family member was suffering from a mental illness, officers found an adult male displaying violent behavior. As officers attempted to restrain the male, he fired a weapon, striking an officer in the leg. Fortunately, the officer's injury is believed to be non-life threatening.

Each day, our officers place their lives on the line to protect and serve the people of Baltimore and, on a day such as this, we are not only reminded of how dangerous this line of work can be, but we are also extremely grateful for the work our officers do to keep our communities safe. I want to thank the officers for providing aid and taking the suspect into custody. Behavioral health challenges are a very real thing for our community, and it is imperative for services to be made available for those who need them most."
