A man wanted in connection with shooting another man near City College last night was shot by pursuing police after he fired a shot at them, police said.

The man was listed in fair condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital and has refused to identify himself.

While uniformed police were investigating the shooting of a man near the school around 8 p.m., plainclothes officers spotted the suspect near the 1500 block of Carswell St. a short time later and gave chase.

Police said when the officers approached the suspect, he fired a shot at them and missed.

Police returned fire, hitting the man in the right ankle and left thigh.

The name of the officer who shot the suspect was not immediately available.

During the chase, one officer fell and was treated for a minor injury at Good Samaritan Hospital and released.
