Update (February 3, 2014): The name of the officer involved in this shooting is Schupple. His rank is Officer, and he has been with BCoPD for 15 years. Per BCoPD's agreement with the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4, this is the only information that will be released about this officer.

Police are investigating a non-fatal police-involved shooting this morning involving a Cockeysville man who assaulted his 72-year-old stepfather, his 69-year-old mother and a Cockeysville police officer.

Police responded at 10:26 a.m. to the 300 block of Wellingborough Way  for an unknown trouble call involving a subject who possibly was suffering from a mental and/or medical problem.

Police arrived to find an adult man in the second-floor  apartment that he shares with his mother and stepfather; the man was physically assaulting his elderly stepfather who displayed physical injuries. When the Cockeysville officer attempted to intervene and subdue the man, the man physically attacked the officer. The officer retreated to the hallway and down the stairs and was followed by the man, who violently assaulted the officer again in the first-floor vestibule.

At this point, injured and fearing for  his life, the officer fired several rounds from his service weapon, striking the suspect. 

BCoFD medical crews provided treatment at the  scene and transported the suspect to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. 

The officer, the stepfather and mother all were transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the  fight with the suspect.

 Preliminary investigation shows that this morning the two older people became involved in a dispute with the suspect over his care and living arrangements, and that the dispute escalated to the point where the suspect began physically assaulting them.

The suspect, whose name is not being released at this time, is not believed to have been armed.

The Homicide Unit investigates all police-involved shootings. Per BCoPD policy, the Cockeysville officer will be  placed on routine administrative leave during the investigation. His last name and assignment will be released later this week, per BCoPD's agreement with the local police union.

At 3:01 Baltimore County 911 center received a call for an apartment fire at 37 Tentmill Lane, Pikesville Maryland.

Crews arrived to find fire in a second floor apartment and were faced with multiple residents still in the apartments. Fire crews and Baltimore County Police assisted in extricating and rescuing multiple residents.

Two  residents were transported to Northwest Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The fire involved 4 units and displaced about 20 residents. Red Cross is on scene assisting with the displaced residents.

The cold weather and icing conditions complicated fire department operations, and salt trucks assisted on scene. The cause and origin are under investigation. Updates will be provided as they become available.
