VIDEO: Maryland Officer Critically Wounded in Early Friday Shooting, Suspect at Large

An Anne Arundel (Md.) County police officer was in critical condition at a trauma center after being shot by a suspect early Friday morning.

Police say the shooting happened just after 2 a.m. outside a 7-Eleven just off Route 50 in Annapolis where the officer was responding to a suspicious person call, CBS Baltimore reports.

When the officer arrived a struggle ensued and the suspect fled. The officer chased him and was shot by the time other officers arrived.

Police say the suspect who was still at large Friday afternoon is an African American male, 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-8 and about 20 to 30 years old. A manhunt was still under way at presstime.

No more struggles, either they submit or you escalate to the force necessary to subdue and take into custody. No more hands on and getting in the mud with the animals. Law Enforcement should not have to risk being overpowered and killed because of a persons color, lack of compliance or belief he is being singled out due to his color.

Any suspicious person call at 2am should automatically be a 2 officer response. You can't take a chance anymore because there are too many animals out to get Police Officers. This one should have snake Sharpton jumping for joy.

Someone call Al con man liar racist Sharpton so he can go to that call & deal with his own ghetto thug kind. Cops need to take 7 hour code-7s n relax. Let all de ghettos rot.
