Boy who shot Portsmouth officer was still wearing her handcuffs when arrested, court documents say

The police officer who was shot Monday was trying to detain a 15-year-old boy who had been reported as a runaway, according to court documents.

The boy shot "Officer Baaklini" and ran, but other officers took him into custody with one of her handcuffs still on his wrist, a search warrant affidavit filed in Circuit Court says. A database of city employees lists Angelina Baaklini as an officer who's been on the force for about 15 months.

She was shot in the 2500 block of Hickory St., and responding officers saw the boy running toward the London Oaks apartment complex, the affidavit says. Officers found a gun along the path that he "admitted to taking when fleeing the scene," the document says.

"Officer Baaklini did not see a weapon at the time of his detainment," it says.
