Police Cruiser Runs Over Fleeing Car Jacker

On Tuesday June 14, 2021 around 7:08 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 1800 Block of Druid Hill Avenue for an armed carjacking. The victim, a food delivery driver, was approached by a suspect that displayed a firearm and drove away in the victim’s vehicle.

A short time later, officers located the vehicle and activated their lights and sirens in an attempt to stop the vehicle. The 16 year-old suspect sped away from police, at which time air support was requested for Foxtrot to assist in tracking the vehicle. The suspect sped through city streets, going through several red lights and stop signs before bailing out of the vehicle.

A short foot pursuit then transpired, at which time the suspect was struck by a police vehicle. Aid was immediately rendered to the suspect and through that course of that action, a black semi-automatic airsoft handgun was recovered from the suspect’s pant leg. He was transported to a local hospital and after a medical evaluation, it was determined that he did not need to be admitted, rather treated for minor injuries and released a short time later.

The suspect has been charged as an adult with Armed Carjacking and numerous other offenses. The Foxtrot Video of the incident was immediately forwarded to the Department’s Public Integrity Bureau and the Special Investigation Response Team is investigating this as a Use of Force incident. An internal investigation was subsequently initiated. – Baltimore Police

  1. Shortly after I retired, a new officer at my old PD did almost the exact same thing, except the guy died. He was fired and the City shelled out something like a half million to the family.
