Antonio Oliver Janifer Wanted for Allegedly Shooting Police Officer
Baltimore police are seeking information leading to the arrest of the man wanted for shooting a police officer on Tuesday.
“The Baltimore Police Department would like to thank our federal partners for their dedicated work in assisting us in apprehending the individual responsible for shooting one of our officers,” Commissioner Michael Harrison said in a statement. “We are extremely grateful for this partnership and in getting us one step closer to ensuring that justice will be served.”
Officer Joshua Jackson was on routine patrol when he saw a vehicle driving erratically near East Pratt and Light streets. Jackson believed the driver may have been under the influence and tried to pull him over. As he tried to stop the vehicle, it sped southbound on Light Street, where it crashed a short time later.
The suspect, identified by police as Antonio Oliver Janifer, ran from the scene and fired at Jackson in the subsequent foot pursuit. He then carjacked a vehicle and drove off, police said.
Jackson was taken to Shock Trauma with a gunshot wound to the lower abdomen and released the following morning.
Janifer, 28, is a black male with brown eyes and brown hair styled in long dreadlocks. He is 6 feet, 1 inch tall and around 210 pounds with numerous tattoos. His neck is covered with tattoos including dollar signs on his throat.
Janifer is wanted on an arrest warrant for 13 charges, including attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and assault of a law enforcement officer. Janifer is a convicted felon who is prohibited from possessing firearms. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
