ARNOLD, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County Police say an officer has been shot and critically wounded and police are searching for the shooter.

Police spokesman Lt. T. J. Smith said the shooting occurred early Friday near a 7-Eleven along College Parkway in the Arnold area.

Smith says the officer made contact with a man around 2 a.m. after someone reported a suspicious person in the area. He says both ran away from the 7-Eleven and witnesses then heard gunshots.

Smith says other responding officers found the officer suffering from a gunshot wound. He says police believe the man fired at the officer and they consider the man armed and dangerous.

The officer was taken to Shock Trauma at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.
