Baltimore County Police and Fire News

Official News Blog of Baltimore County police, fire, homeland security and emergency management. Call 911 to report crimes in progress and emergencies.
Date: Mar 2014

Update, 9:10 p.m.: Police have finished interviewing the two male Stevenson University students  involved in today's incident. The students were shooting ducks and geese near the campus. They have been released, and no charges will be filed. 

At 2:23 this afternoon, Baltimore County Police responded to the Owings Mills Campus of Stevenson University for a report of a subject with a weapon. There were two people who saw what they believed to be a person with a gun and called 911.

Stevenson University Security also received reports of a person with a gun and quickly put the school on lockdown, advising students to shelter in place.

Additional officers and specialized units such as Aviation, K-9, and the Tactical Unit responded to the scene to assist in the search and investigation.

There was a pellet gun recovered from a vehicle on campus and two students are being interviewed by police in reference to the incident. Those students voluntarily came out of a building to speak with police.

The campus lockdown has since been lifted.

During this incident there were no shots fired and no reports of injuries. Police continue to speak with the two students to determine what actually happened. There has been no evidence that there has been a crime committed at this point.

April 6 through April 12 is National Victims’ Rights Week. The observance marks the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Victims of Crime Act.
