Baltimore police are questioning a possible suspect in the shooting of a city officer who was wounded while responding to a domestic violence call on Tuesday night, according to a department spokesman.

The spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi, released no other immediate details pending formal charges.

The officer, a five-year veteran on the midnight shift in the Southwestern District, was grazed in the hip by a bullet as he stepped out of his patrol car after arriving at a call in the 1100 block of Cooks Lane, just south of Gwynns Falls Park. The shooting occurred about 11:40 p.m.

The officer was treated and released from Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Detectives are still trying to determine what prompted the shooting; they said earlier they do not believe it was related to the domestic violence call.
