One suspect in armed robbery shot, one arrested, police say
Baltimore police shot one man in the stomach during a gunbattle and arrested another Saturday night in West Baltimore after a chase that began in Baltimore County, a police spokesman said. The men are suspected of involvement in the shooting of two men during a robbery Tuesday night at Your Convenience Store in the 700 block Frederick Road, in Catonsville and in a second robbery-shooting Friday night, according to Baltimore County police. In the Catonsville incident, Brian Michael Meise, 52, was killed, and store owner Sudhir Shah, 55, was wounded. City police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said county police chased a vehicle used by two men into the city's Edmondson area about 7:30 p.m. The men abandoned their car, but police arrested the driver. The passenger ran, firing at police, who fired back. He was hit in the stomach in the 4500 block of Pen Lucy Road and taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, Guglielmi said. Two city officers suffered "very superficial" scrapes and bruises during the foot chase, he said.
