CAPE ST. CLAIRE, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Maryland say a police officer shot and wounded a knife-wielding suspect over the weekend.
Anne Arundel County police spokeswoman Sgt. Jacklyn Davis said officers were dispatched to a home in Cape St. Claire on Sunday after a caller reported an ex-boyfriend outside their house.
Davis said the suspect also called 911 and said he had a gun. The spokeswoman said that when officers arrived, the suspect ran around a police car and charged at an officer with a knife.
The officer fired and struck the suspect, who was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening wounds. The officer was placed on administrative leave.
