A Baltimore police officer was shot in the arm by a Baltimore County officer Monday afternoon while in Odenton serving a warrant with a law enforcement task force, police said.
The city officer, who was not identified, was shot about 2:15 p.m. in the 100 block of Pinecove Ave., in a townhouse community east of Fort Meade, officials said. The injury was described as a "through and through" wound and was not considered life-threatening, though he was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution.
Police arrested Vernon Andre Jackson, 38, at the scene. Justin Mulcahy, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police Department, said Jackson was carrying 27 pounds of marijuana and was arrested outside the home. Mulcahy said the arrest was part of a continuing drug investigation by a regional task force.
