BALTIMORE — A suspect was struck by a Baltimore Police vehicle Monday evening following a report of an armed carjacking.

According to police, at around 7:08 p.m. on Monday, officers were dispatched to the 1800 Block of Druid Hill Avenue.

They say the victim, who was a food delivery driver, was approached by a suspect that displayed a firearm and drove away in the victim’s vehicle.

A short time later, officers found the vehicle and attempted to stop it, however the 16-year-old suspect continued fleeing.

Police say the suspect sped through city streets, going through several red lights and stop signs before bailing out of the vehicle.

During a foot pursuit, in which the suspect is seen changing his shirt, a police vehicle ends up striking him in an alley.

Aid was immediately rendered to him and a black semi-automatic airsoft handgun was recovered from the teen's pant leg.

He was taken to a local hospital and it was determined that he did not need to be admitted. The suspect was charged as an adult with Armed Carjacking and numerous other offenses.

The Foxtrot Video of the incident was immediately forwarded to the Department’s Public Integrity Bureau and the Special Investigation Response Team is investigating this as a Use of Force incident. An internal investigation was subsequently initiated.
