'Suspicious Subject' Shot, Killed by Police in Dundalk

Baltimore County Police Homicide Detectives are investigating the incident.

Two Baltimore County police officers are on administrative leave after a police involved shooting left one man dead in Dundalk early Sunday morning.

Officers responded to Seaside Road and Dunmanway at about 2:15 a.m. on Sept. 23 to investigate a "suspicious subject," Lt. Robert McCullough stated in a press release.

"The officers were attempting to interview the subject when he became combative. The subject then suddenly attempted to take one of the officer's firearm. Fearing for the officers' safety, a second officer pulled out his firearm and shot the subject," McCullough stated.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by Baltimore County Fire Department Paramedics, according to the release.

McCullough described the two officers involved as veterans of the police department. Pending an investigation by Baltimore County Police Homicide Detectives, the officers have been placed on administrative leave, the release stated.

No further details were released as of 9 a.m. Sunday.

So are you saying he did have stolen items in his back pack? BTW, as disgraceful as it is, plenty of criminals have been buried with full military honors in the past. One would think a serviceman would respect authority and cooperate with Police Officers. Why didn't he let them question him? Why didn't he let them search his bag? Why did he resist arrest? Could it be that because he was a serviceman he would be in deep s#!+ if he caught with stolen property and thought his best chance was to try to avoid arrest? Did you ever consider that possibility? And how was I put in my place in the other article?

Gomer, Let me be clear I saying he had stolen anything I was referring to the other Article that said he had stolen thinks in his backpack. The Lopez family nkew what was in the backpack like I said it will come out in the investigation. He was not being arrested dont know were you heard that. how do you know he didn't let them search his bag? how do you know he did'nt answer their question and they didn't like the answer, and they got rough him?did you ever consider that possibility. no you are judging him before you can hear all the FACT and the EVIDENCE.
