Baltimore police Media Relations Chief T.J. Smith said four plainclothes officers were in an unmarked police car in the area of the 2300 block of Winchester Street when they heard gunfire around 9:30 p.m.

"They actually heard gunfire. When they heard this gunfire, they drove toward it at one of the apartment buildings on Winchester Street. They drove into the parking lot and they saw a man armed with an AR-15-style rifle, firing that weapon. He was firing that weapon and he turned that weapon toward officers and started firing the weapon toward officers and the officers returned fire," Smith said.

Smith said the armed man was struck at least once in the upper body. The suspect fled into an apartment building and was found on the second floor. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
