CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Maryland State Police on Monday arrested a Cambridge man they say shot at Cambridge police officers back in December.

Two officers of the Cambridge Police Department were conducting a crime reduction patrol along Race Street and Goldsborough Avenue at around 11:30 p.m. Dec. 18 when a man began walking toward them. The officers report the man began reaching into his waistband, withdrew a large caliber handgun and fired once at the officers. One of the officers got out of the police car and shot back at the suspect, who ran away. The officer proceeded to run after the suspect, but could not catch him.
