Wounded man charged with multiple offenses

A man who was shot in the face after allegedly pointing a sawed-off shotgun at a Baltimore police officer June 6 in the Waverly neighborhood has been released from a hospital and charged with multiple offenses, police said.

Darryl Haskins Jr., 24, of the 7400 block of Rutherford Green Circle in Woodlawn sped away in a maroon Chevrolet Monte Carlo after being stopped by an officer on Greenmount Avenue and led several officers in a pursuit, police said.

After the car struck a police vehicle, slightly injuring two officers in the 3000 block of Frisby St., Northern District Lt. Stanley Noland approached the car with his gun drawn, firing after Haskins pointed the shotgun at him, police said.

Police reported seizing body armor and shotgun ammunition from the car.

Haskins was released Wednesday from Johns Hopkins Hospital and charged with first- and second-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon. He was being held yesterday at Central Booking and Intake Center.

Boy charged with having gun

An 11-year-old Carroll County boy is accused of carrying a stainless steel, .357-caliber revolver into a Hampstead convenience store Tuesday, flashing the gun and running away from an officer who tried to retrieve it from him, authorities said yesterday.

Hampstead Police Sgt. Clint Thorn chased a Hampstead boy about noon outside the Jiffy Mart in the 1100 block of Main St., tackling him and seizing a gun, police said. The boy had taken the weapon, which was not loaded, from his father's closet, police said.

The boy was charged with handgun possession and attempted armed robbery, police said. He is being held at the Regional Institute for Children and Adolescents detention facility in Baltimore.

Sex offender sought by police

A 27-year-old convicted sex offender was being sought yesterday by the Harford County Sheriff's Office for failing to register as a child sexual offender after his release from prison. Scott Robert Speakman, formerly of Edgewood, was released from the Maryland Correctional Training Center on June 7 after serving a 12-year sentence for second-degree rape, sexual assault and sexual child abuse. The Sheriff's Office has been unable to locate Speakman and considers him a threat to the community, said Lt. James Eyler. Anyone with information is asked to call 410-838-6600 or the 24-hour tip line at 1-888-540-TIPS.
