Baltimore police identified the officer who shot a man in
Moss, a nine-year veteran of the force, is on the customary administrative leave that officers take while detectives investigate the shooting. He was involved in a previous shooting on the job, said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, who did not have details on that incident.
Guglielmi said officers had stopped a car for a traffic violation on the 3200 block of Cliftmont Avenue, and a man jumped out and ran away. Two officers followed him as he crossed Edison Highway and then into an alley.
One officer reported seeing a gun, and Moss fired at the man, striking him in the hand. No gun, however, was found at the scene. The 26-year-old man, who suffered non-life threatening injuries, has not been charged so his name has not been released.
