Robbery attempt suspect critical after being shot


A Southwest Baltimore man remained in critical condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore yesterday after he was shot Tuesday night by an off-duty Baltimore police officer during a robbery attempt at an ATM outside a bank in Abingdon, Harford County, authorities said.

The suspect was identified by state police as Jermaine D. Gray, 23, a resident of the Woodington Garden Apartments in the 200 block of Diener Place.

The officer, George W. Boston III, 47, was not injured. He was placed on administrative duty yesterday and was expected to return to his normal duties today with the city's tactical squad, Sam Ringgold, a city police spokesman, said yesterday.

Mr. Gray was taken by ambulance to Fallston General Hospital and his condition was stabilized before he was flown by helicopter to Shock Trauma, where he underwent surgery.
