Baltimore police district commander shoots man in Morrell Park

A commander of the Baltimore police department's Southwest District shot a man in the leg in the Morrell Park neighborhood on Monday night, police said..

Police on Tuesday morning identified the officer as Major Byron Conaway, a district commander and a 16-year-veteran of the department. He will be placed on routine administrative duties.

It's unclear why Conaway stopped the man, police said. The man refused to show the officer his hands on command, and he fired once, striking him in the leg, police said. The wound is nonfatal, police said. No weapon was found on the man, police said.

Ronald Birmingham, 41, said the victim was his brother, John Joseph Rau, 40. He said Rau had just stopped by Birmingham's porch a block away for a cigarette before he was shot.

"He got up off the steps, he walked up the street. There was a crowd coming down the street, the officer jumped out and told my brother to put his hands up," Birmingham said. "He put his hands up, and he shot him."
