BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore’s police chief says a city firefighter was shot in the hand and another person was wounded in a shooting.

Chief Kevin Davis says both victims are expected to survive their injuries. He described the gunman as a “brazen, arrogant criminal.” Police are searching for a suspect.

Davis says the gunman got into a dispute inside a cellphone store and went outside. Davis says the man drew a gun and started firing indiscriminately into the store. He says the 43-year-old firefighter and a 65-year-old man came around the corner, and the gunman turned toward them and shot them.

Davis says the firefighter was on duty and in uniform.
