BALTIMORE (AP) — Police in Baltimore say an officer has been shot as well as a suspect at a drug treatment center.

Baltimore police said in a statement Monday that the police officer was taken to a hospital. The Baltimore Sun reports multiple people were being carried out on stretchers from the treatment center.

Police didn’t release the condition of the officer or the suspect. No other details were immediately released. Baltimore police say they’re planning to hold a news conference.
