MARYLAND– Two people are in custody after a police-involved shooting in Baltimore County.
According to FOX45 Baltimore’s Amber Miller, Baltimore County Public Safety has confirmed that a suspect was shot by a police officer sometime Tuesday morning after a theft turned into a pursuit in the 7400 block of Pulaski Highway in Rosedale:
Baltimore County Public Safety says that the female suspect was a shoplifter at Walgreen’s in Parkville.
When he attempted to flee, officer’s noticed the expired tags on her vehicle, and began to pursue.
Public Safety said that the chase lasted for about 15 minutes, and included the suspect crashing into the officer’s car.
At one point, the officer allegedly got out of his vehicle at Pulaski Highway near 65th Street and attempted to approach the suspect.
At that time, the suspect allegedly attempted to run the officer over with her vehicle and took out a fence in the process.
The officer fired multiple shots, hitting a male passenger in the vehicle multiple times in the upper body, according to FOX5 Baltimore.
The suspect continued to drive until the vehicle broke down near Moravia Road.
Both the suspect and passenger were taken into custody, but the passenger was taken to the hospital to receive treatment for the gunshot wounds. There is no word on his condition.
Miller also noted an interesting fact, being that the officer involved in today’s incident was driving the same vehicle assigned to fallen officer Amy Caprio on the day she died.
This is a developing story. FOX43 will provide updates as they become available.
