Cops: Suspect opened fire at random during Baltimore police chase

"Fortunately, she was not injured", Smith tweeted, adding that the suspect and his girlfriend "had been communicating with each other" during the chase.

"This could have been much, much worse", Baltimore police commissioner Kevin Davis said at a Monday afternoon press conference.

T.J. Smith, the police department's chief spokesman, said the person who ran up to the vehicle as officers moved in was the suspect's girlfriend. "He's being chased by the police and he's firing and striking these civilians as he's being chase by the police", Davis said. "Officers returned fire in the area of Fulton and Moser (streets)".

That is when the police pursuit began, with the police helicopter Foxtrot pursuing from the air, Smith said.

The suspect then shot another man who was in a auto, striking him in the upper body and leaving him in "very critical" condition, Smith said.

The suspect's auto sped through traffic lights, narrowly missing pedestrians and collided with at least one vehicle. The vehicle's back bumper at one point came unhinged and could be seen dragging behind the auto.

A police officer ran full-throttle to the vehicle when it finally came to a stop at an intersection. A police officer who initially pulled the suspect over was shot at during the chase but was apparently not hit.

A high-speed chase that wound through streets of Baltimore for at least 20 minutes has ended in the arrest of two men.

The unnamed suspect was caught around noon after he bailed out of his vehicle following a lengthy high-speed chase.

Two weapons were recovered from the vehicle. One shooting happened Thursday night when police say three people were shot, one of which was killed.

Davis said the suspect "potentially jeaopardized the entire city today due to intentional recklessness with two guns". "What possessed the guy to do this? Obviously he's someone we want off the streets".
