Baltimore County Police have charged Officer Timothy Kennedy, a 27-year veteran of the agency, with one count of failing to secure a firearm to prevent access by a minor.

On October 11, Officer Kennedy's 11-year-old son was able to obtain his father's service weapon after he set it down on an armoire in his bedroom when he arrived home from work. His son discharged the weapon, and the bullet struck the door. There were no injuries from this incident. Officer Kennedy's wife reported the incident to the department the following day and a criminal investigation was started.

The case was referred to the State's Attorney's Office for review. Detectives applied for a criminal summons on October 25.

Chief Emphasizes Gun Safety Priority

"This Department has spent much time and effort advocating for gun owners to handle their weapons safely and responsibly, especially when it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of children," said Police Chief James Johnson. "We do not hesitate to enforce gun safety laws, and, as this unfortunate case shows, that includes cases involving our own officers."

Police Powers Suspended

Officer Kennedy's police powers were suspended when the department was notified of this incident. He will remain suspended pending the results of the criminal case. Per policy, the internal investigation will be completed at the conclusion of the criminal process.

Update: On October 26, police located Christopher Hilliard in Precinct 12/North Point. Hilliard, a registered sex offender, was arrested on the open warrant for failing to report to Baltimore City Police on October 8, as required by law.

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's help locating Christopher Hilliard, 33, of the 1500 block of Charlotte Avenue, 21224.

He was last seen on July 26 by a family member, but he was not reported missing until September 17. He is a resident of Baltimore City but was reported missing in Baltimore County.

Now Has Open Warrant

He is a registered sex offender, and also failed to report to the Baltimore City Police Department as required on October 8. There is now a warrant for his arrest for failing to register. Detectives have been unable to locate him, and are asking for the public's help.

Christopher Hilliard is a white male, 33 years old, 5'7" tall, 165 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tear drop tattoo by his left eye.

Baltimore County Police are asking anyone with information regarding his whereabouts to call 410-307-2020.
