One woman was injured and a man is in custody following last night's police-involved shooting in Windsor Mill in which a stolen vehicle fled and struck three police cars, as well as six civilian vehicles carrying eleven people.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that, just prior to 8:30 p.m. on April 21, 2017, Baltimore County police officers on routine patrol near Milford Mill Road located a stolen vehicle. The stolen vehicle was described as a 2013 Honda reported stolen from the area of Sinclair Lane in Baltimore City on April 15.

Officers first attempted to stop the stolen vehicle and arrest the occupants in the area of Liberty Road and Milford Mill Road.

These officers, in two different police cruisers, attempted to block the suspect vehicle by positioning the cruisers on either end of the suspect vehicle. The officers exited their cruisers and identified themselves as police officers. The operator of the stolen car drove forward, pushing that police car forward. Then, the driver of the stolen car reversed and pushed second cruiser backward, causing the second police cruiser to strike an officer, knocking that officer to the ground.

The suspect vehicle fled from police, eastbound into the area of Liberty Road and Lord Baltimore Drive, where police made a second attempt to arrest the suspect. In an effort to avoid arrest, the suspect vehicle fled again, striking the civilian vehicles before driving directly toward a police officer. That officer, in fear for his life, fired at the suspect vehicle.

The suspect vehicle continued to flee along Liberty Road, jumping the median and traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes. The suspect vehicle finally stopped -- because it became inoperable, police believe -- at Liberty and Sussex roads. The driver of the suspect vehicle fled on foot and was arrested a short distance away.

The three other occupants of the car also were taken into custody.

Baltimore County Fire Department medic crews were called immediately, and one wounded suspect was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

The 11 victims in the civilian vehicles struck by the suspect vehicle refused medical transport.

The driver of the suspect vehicle, a 23-year-old man, is in police custody. Charges are pending. This man is wanted in multiple jurisdictions. 

The front seat passenger, a woman, was injured as a result of the shooting and continues to receive medical treatment at this time. Her injuries appear non life-threatening.

There were two additional female occupants seated in the rear of the suspect vehicle. Those passengers were interviewed and have been released without charge. All occupants of the suspect vehicle were adults.

Body-worn camera footage from the scene is part of the ongoing investigation and will not be released at this time.

The officer involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative status while the incident is reviewed, a standard procedure.

The Homicide Unit investigates all police involved shootings. After the investigation is complete, the incident will be reviewed by the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office.

Baltimore County Police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect in the brutal beating of a man in Dundalk on January 27.

The victim, a 31-year-old man from the Dundalk area, suffered extensive internal and external injuries to his head, face, and torso when he was attacked on the parking lot of the Wok and Roll Chinese restaurant in the 7700 block of Westfield Road around 9:45 p.m. that Friday night. He was hospitalized for 3 days at R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma and has no recollection of the events surrounding the incident.

The investigation into the incident reveals that the victim was speaking with a white female sitting in the passenger seat of what is believed to be a silver SUV, possibly a Jeep Liberty or Jeep Compass or similar type vehicle. At that time, a black male exited the Wok and Roll restaurant, approached the victim, and without prompting began striking him in the face and head repeatedly. He threw the victim to the ground and began kicking him. The suspect then re-entered the Wok and Roll restaurant and attempted to place an order. The female in the silver SUV moved into the driver seat and began honking the horn until the suspect exited the restaurant and got into the passenger side of the vehicle, at which time they fled the scene.

Anyone with information on this case or this suspect is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.
