Moving quickly to quell resident concerns about police actions during the arrest of four at Gilmor Homes on Wednesday, a top Baltimore police commander walked the housing project and assigned investigators to look into the case.

Some said an officer used a Taser on a woman holding a young child. Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said he personally viewed city surveillance camera footage of the incident and disputed the witness accounts, saying the woman had handed off the child before she was struck with the Taser.
