"Public Enemy No. 1" sought in new shooting

The man dubbed "Public Enemy No. 1" last week by Baltimore Police for allegedly stabbing his child's mother is now also being sought as a "person of interest" in the shooting of a woman that occurred early Saturday, according to an internal memo obtained by The Baltimore Sun.

In an e-mail to officers, investigators said Christopher Troy Goode, 26, is wanted for questioning in a shooting that occurred in the 1600 block of Elmtree St. in Curtis Bay at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. A woman suffered a gunshot wound to her left arm and a graze wound to her right arm after an unidentified man came up through an alley and began firing a weapon, police said. 

The e-mail does not clarify why officers want to speak to Goode in relation to the shooting, though officials said the victim is not the same woman he is accused of stabbing multiple times on Sept. 12 in the 2200 block of Sidney Ave. 

Goode is charged with attempted murder and other charges in relation to that incident, and on Oct. 2 police dubbed Goode their "Public Enemy No. 1," a recent campaign to help bring attention to cases and help catch wanted individuals. 

"Please pay special attention to Mr. Christopher Goode," the weekend e-mail reads. "He is currently wanted on unrelated charges. Please approach same with caution as he may be armed."

Police declined to comment on the shooting case, saying it is an active investigation.

The "Public Enemy No. 1" campaign has led to at least one false identification since police started using it this summer. After Darryl Anderson was identified as the agency's top fugitive for allegedly shooting three women and committing a home invasion robbery in Northeast Baltimore, county police were told by a White Marsh woman that Anderson had robbed her.

But after Anderson was found to have been in Alabama, the woman recanted. Her children's football gear had been stolen from her car and she was embarassed, and said she gave Anderson's name because she had seen it on the news and figured he was already wanted. She was charged with making a false complaint, county police said.
