A plainclothes officer was shot in the right foot last night during a drug raid at a Northwest Baltimore rowhouse where police were met with gunfire from semiautomatic weapons.
Officers crashed through the front door of a house in the 600 block of Baker Street, west of Pennsylvania Avenue, shortly before 11:15 p.m. and were shot at by at least two men on the second floor, police said.
During the exchange of gunfire, an officer was wounded in the foot. None of the suspects was shot.
Lt. William Robbins of the homicide squad said five men were arrested on narcotics charges. A 9mm handgun and a .380-caliber pistol were seized, along with about 100 vials of cocaine and 50 bags of heroin, police said. An unknown amount of money was also confiscated.
