A 31-year-old man with a violent criminal past has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for shooting a city police officer in Baltimore's downtown, which sparked a running gun battle with tactical officers who pursued the gunman up North Calvert Street. Prosecutors said Franklin J. Gross Sr., whose last known address was on Liberty Heights Avenue in Northwest Baltimore, pleaded guilty in Circuit Court to attempted first-degree murder and using a handgun in a crime of violence. The officer he shot, Todd A. Strohman, had been on the force just one year when he was wounded in the shoulder while patrolling North Calvert and East Baltimore streets in the early morning hours of Nov. 27, 2010.
