EVENDALE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a suspect in a Maryland slaying was shot and wounded by a police officer along Interstate 75 in suburban Cincinnati.
The Hamilton County sheriff says the 46-year-old man was hospitalized in stable condition after the Tuesday afternoon shooting. Sheriff Jim Neil says the man is wanted on a warrant from Baltimore County.
Maryland authorities say Pablo Javier Aleman is suspected in a man’s fatal stabbing March 17. It couldn’t immediately be determined if Aleman has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
Police say the Glendale officer who shot Aleman wasn’t injured. They say the officer approached Aleman to offer assistance as he walked along the highway about 20 miles north of Cincinnati.
This story has been updated to correct the suspect’s name to Pablo Javier Aleman instead of Javier Pablo Aleman.
