BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police have identified 30-year-old Tyrone Domingo Banks as the deceased suspect involved in the Southeast Baltimore Police involved shooting on Wednesday night.

The shooting happened around 11 p.m. in the area of East Fayette Street and North Caroline Avenue. Police say an officer was injured and taken to Shock Trauma with non-life threatening injuries as a result of the encounter.

It was reported that Banks pointed a gun at officers and got back in the car and officers pursued him.

BPD Commissioner Harrison said in a late night news conference that multiple officers fired weapons at Banks at the intersection of East Fayette and North Caroline. The officers fatally wounded him and is still unknown how many rounds were targeted at him.

Banks was later taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say they believe Banks was involved in an incident on Tuesday where a person shot at an officer and tried to run over a different officer.

At this time, investigators are unsure if the injured officer was struck by the suspect or friendly cross-fire.

In the last month and a half there have been six officer-involved incidences where officers have been victims of crimes.
