Police officer shot in Maryland has died

An emergency vehicle near a scene where a Baltimore County police officer died in Perry Hall Md

Four hours after the incident, Chief Terrence B. Sheridan said police are awaiting an autopsy to determine the officer's cause and manner of death.

The officer, who has not been identified, responded to Linwen Way in the community of Perry Hall around 2 p.m. after dispatch received a call regarding a potential burglary with four suspects, according to police.

Larry Hogan said on Twitter that the officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty.

A Baltimore County police officer died Monday after responding to an incident, marking the 10th officer killed in the department's almost 150-year history. This officer will be the 11th to die on duty.

The officer was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 2:50 p.m., according to CNN affiliate WJZ-TV.

Kurek's neighbor, Dahle Amendt, said he had just settled into his recliner for a rest when he heard a woman's voice outside his house.

Authorities were advising motorists to avoid the area and residents to shelter in place while the hunt for the suspect or suspects continued.

SkyTeam 11 Capt. Roy Taylor reported the suspect or suspects left the scene in a Jeep Wrangler, then bailed out of the auto in the area of Pine Hill and Belair roads.

Hardgrove said she could not confirm that the officer had been shot. "We are seeing police officers assaulted". The officers who died at the hands of gunshots is up. "And so we're telling everybody to be on your toes, don't be complacent, to work with each other".

"We are now investigating this as a homicide", Sheridan said at a press conference Monday evening.

State and federal authorities are assisting at the scene, Vinson said.

A witness told a local television station that one of his sons saw the officer with her gun drawn, trying to pull over a Jeep, when the vehicle accelerated.

The unnamed officer was responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle near the Perry Hall area around 2pm when the shooting took place.

Volunteer firefighter Logan Kurek says he ran outside and performed CPR on the officer until paramedics arrived, and says her injuries were consistent with being run over by a vehicle.

Amendt said his wife also ran outside and tried to revive the officer, to no avail. Parents are being told to contact school administrators for further instructions.
