Baltimore Police identified two suspects on Friday that were involved in a shootout with officers in West Baltimore earlier in the week that left one person dead.

Ricky Dixon, 21, was charged with attempted murder and several weapons charges, police said. The other suspect identified, 23-year-old Larry Hooker, was killed in the shootout.

The incident took place at about 10 p.m. Monday after two officers on foot patrol in the 2700 block of Edmondson Ave. saw gunfire coming out of a bronze sedan, police said. The officers fired on the car, police said. All three men shot were in the vehicle, police said.

Police have been involved in eight other shootings this year, killing two and wounding seven.
