A 34-year-old man who was shot in the head last week when a car in which he was a passenger tried to run down a city police sergeant has died from his wounds.
Sgt. Paul L. Abell Jr. fired on the car when the driver refused to stop.
Abe O'Neil Leslie of the 900 block of Nottingham Road in southwest Baltimore died shortly after noon Saturday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Police said the shooting occurred about 11 p.m. Thursday when a car driven by David Arthur Cuthrell tried to run down Sergeant Abell after he noticed the car stopped with its lights out in a known drug area in the 500 block of Denison St.
