1 Injured, 2 In Custody After 3 Involved In Shootout Drive To Hopkins Hospital

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Police are investigating a shooting in East Baltimore after police say they followed three of those involved in the shootout to Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, Baltimore Police Department officers saw two groups of people shooting at each other in the 2100 block of Aiken St.

Officers followed a vehicle involved for two miles, and the vehicle ended up at the N. Wolfe St. entrance of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

There were three people inside the vehicle, and one was injured from a gunshot wound.

"The guy, he climbed out of the backseat, and it looked like he just sat down on the ground like he gave up," one witness said.

The injured male suspect/victim is being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The other two people inside the vehicle were taken into custody.

"We are in the areas that we think things might happen," said Baltimore PD spokesman T.J. Smith. "Some bad guys are bolder than others and they do it knowing we are there, and in this scenario we were right there. We were in the right place at the right time."

Smith says there may be other victims, and police are continuing to investigate.

Police say there may be another car involved in the initial shooting that hasn't been found yet.

No officers were involved in the shooting.

The ATF was also on scene.
