August 10, 2004

Two men were shot in the city last night, one fatally in East Baltimore and another when he tried to rob an off-duty police officer on a West Baltimore street.

At 9:53 p.m., an unidentified man was shot several times in the 400 block of S. Lehigh St. and died a short time later at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Forty minutes later, an off-duty Maryland Transit Administration police officer was in street clothes in the 2100 block of N. Fulton Ave. when a man attempted to rob him. Police said the officer shot the would-be robber in the leg.

The wounded man was treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. His name and the officer's name were not released.
