Carjacking suspect flees to Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus.
Baltimore police took a carjacking suspect into custody Wednesday afternoon after a search that prompted a shelter-in-place order at the Johns Hopkins University.
Police sought a man they believed stole a car in Southeast Baltimore, crashed at the corner of Calvert and 32nd streets, and then fled to the university’s Homewood campus, according to Johns Hopkins security and Detective Nicole Monroe, a spokeswoman for the Police Department.
“He bailed out of the car and he ran on the campus,” Monroe said.
Police pursued the man on foot, and he was in custody just after 2 p.m., police spokesman T.J. Smith said. The shelter-in-place order lasted just over 45 minutes.
Detective Jeremy Silbert said three people were injured in the car crash and were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Their conditions were not immediately available.
Staff and students at the campus received a series of alerts advising them to shelter in place, university spokesman Dennis O’Shea said. The warning was lifted after the suspect was captured by police.
