Baltimore shooting slightly wounds off-duty deputy

August 29, 1994

An off-duty Harford County sheriff's deputy was shot late last night while driving near Baltimore's Little Italy neighborhood, police reported.

The bullet wound was not serious and the deputy was expected to be released from a hospital today.

City police said Deputy Scott Davis, 24, was driving east in the 900 block of E. Pratt St. with a companion around 10:30 p.m. when he saw two men arguing at the corner of Albemarle Street.

Deputy Davis later told police he continued on when he heard what sounded like a gunshot. Police said the bullet grazed him near his right temple.

The deputy, police said, drove himself to Bond and Thames streets, where he told a man who was about to enter a bar that he had been shot.

A Fire Department ambulance was dispatched to the scene and took Deputy Davis to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.

Police said there was no evidence that Deputy Davis was the gunman's intended target and that no arrest had been made in the case.
