City police identify armed robbery suspect shot by officers

September 29, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Police identified yesterday the man whom two officers shot Monday night after an armed robbery and attempted home invasion in South Baltimore.

Christopher Brooks, 23, of the 200 block of S. Mason Court was being treated yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center and was expected to survive, said police spokesman Agent Donny Moses. Police do not charge suspects until they are released from the hospital.

Brooks has a criminal record that includes being placed on two years' probation in April after an arrest on a charge of drug manufacturing. He received probation before judgment in the case, prosecutors said.

He had drug arrests in 2001 and an assault arrest in 2003, prosecutors said. Those cases were dismissed.

The officers who shot Brooks - Kurt Roepcke and Jacques Bonaparte - have been placed on routine administrative leave, Moses said.
