The inside of a Baltimore grocery store looked like a Wild West scene when cops and an armed security guard exchanged gunfire … and the terrifying scene is all on video.
The Baltimore Police Department released the body cam footage from last month’s shootout inside a Compare Foods supermarket. You see 2 cops walk into the store as bystanders tell them a security guard is walking around with his handgun out — and then all of a sudden gunshots rang out, sending the officers ducking for cover.
One officer returned fire, and the shootout continued as he scrambled to find a better position — he eventually made his way up a flight of stairs to a room filled with terrified workers.
Police say a 20-year-old man was shot in the arm during the shootout … while the suspect, 34-year-old Dontae Green, fled through a back door. A week later, though, U.S. Marshals tracked him down and got into another shootout with him, but this time Green was shot and killed.
