BALTIMORE — Police have three teens in custody following a carjacking and a barricade situation in Northeast Baltimore.

On Tuesday around 8:30 p.m., officers were shot at the intersection of Wadsworth Way and Fenwick Avenue while following a vehicle that had been carjacked earlier in the day.

The gunfire struck the patrol car.

The suspects, 16, 17 and 18-year-old males, drove off and possibly barricaded themselves inside a home in the 1800 block of Lyndonlea Way, next to Mount Pleasant Golf Course.

Just after 11:30 p.m. police said they had the teens in custody.

The Baltimore Police SWAT team blocked off Lyndonlea Way while they investigated.
