Bail review planned today for man who was shot by off-duty officer


A bail review hearing in District Court was set today for a man who was shot by an off-duty Baltimore police officer Friday night.

Dwight D. Allen, 28, of the 4300 block of Sheldon Ave. in Northeast Baltimore was shot by Officer Stuart Parker, a 14-year veteran, near East Preston and St. Paul streets during an altercation.

Allen, who was charged with assaulting the officer, and Parker had exchanged angry words while driving through downtown. Both got out of their cars, and Allen approached Parker, who identified himself as a police officer, according to police.

Parker, who was not arrested, told investigators that he fired his weapon because he was concerned about his safety. Parker was assigned to administrative duties during the investigation.

Allen was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital on Friday, then arrested and jailed at Central Booking and Intake Center. His bail was set at $75,000 Saturday.
