City police shot and wounded an armed suspect early Monday evening in an East Baltimore neighborhood. The shooting, which occurred around 4:00 p.m. between the Madison and Biddle Street neighborhoods of the Eastern District of Baltimore, came on the heels of the man trying to run police down.

At about 4:15 p.m. police officers witnessed a man driving a black Toyota. They said that he and the vehicle fit the description of a man and automobile that were involved in multiple armed robberies on Monday. He then led police on a chase that ended in the 2800 block of Chase Street, where police witnessed him tossing something from the car.

Police said that they then ordered the man out of the car, to which he responded by driving the car at them, resulting in their opening fire with their weapons. The suspect then drove off again and was able to make it to Loneys Lane and East Monument Street, where they were then able to place him under arrest. He was then transported to a hospital for treatment, however, his condition was unknown at the time of publication.

The man, who is still unidentified, is suspected of robbing, or attempting to rob the Forman Mills and Food Depot in the 2500 block of Belair Road, the CVS store in the 3300 block of Belair Road and Rainbow located in the 3900 block of Erdman Avenue.
