Officer shoots, kills gunman near Baltimore campus
BALTIMORE - Authorities say a police officer at Coppin State University in Baltimore shot and killed a man who had just fired at a moving car near the campus.
Baltimore police spokesman T.J. Smith says the suspected shooter was pronounced dead on the scene Tuesday evening.
Smith says that around 6:20 p.m., two cars approached from a nearby mall on a street near the campus. A uniformed campus officer was driving an unmarked car on the same street.
The police spokesman says one of the cars stopped and the officer's vehicle stopped behind it. A man got out of the passenger side of the car and began shooting at the second car approaching from the mall.
Smith says the university officer then got out of his vehicle and shot the gunman and the two cars sped away.
