A man was shot in the leg and injured as two suspects tried to pull him out of his car in Northeast Baltimore overnight.

Shortly after midnight Tuesday, police interviewed a man who had taken himself to a hospital with a gunshot wound, and he told investigators he had been shot in the 5400 block of Moores Run Drive, in between the Frankford and Cedonia neighborhoods. Two male suspects approached the victim and tried to pull him out of his car at gunpoint, then shot him, police said. The suspects ran away and did not take the man's car, police said.

Police released no further details. Anyone with information is asked to call Northeast District police at 410-396-2444.
