BALTIMORE — An armed man wanted in connection to a robbery at the Horseshoe Casino allegedly tried taking a Baltimore Police officer's gun when he was shot and killed outside a North Baltimore Rite Aid last October.

The Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office on Monday, released a detailed report justifying the actions of officers Ryan Glass and Joel Hawk.

On October 30, John Feggins, 24, was spotted inside a parked Chevy Impala in the Rite Aid parking lot in the 6300 block of York Road.

Feggins apparently hears on the police radio, that he's wanted. That's when he picks up a gun hidden under his driver's seat and tries pushing through the officer, leading to a prolonged physical struggle, the report found.

Officer Hawk arrived on scene shortly after to assist.

Eventually Feggins was shot a combined three times by both officers with their service weapons. He later died.

Based off ballistics analysis, it's not believed Feggins fired though his gun was capable of doing so.

Police later confirmed Feggins and the vehicle he was in were both tied to an October 9 robbery inside the garage at Horseshoe Casino.

Hawk and Glass both suffered minor injuries following the incident.
