 Tonight at 6:26 PM, Baltimore County Fire Department units were dispatched to 1900 Graves Court, Dundalk, Maryland for a reported building fire at the Owl Corporation, a recycling plant.

Upon arrival, units found heavy fire in the portion of the warehouse that housed bundles of recycled paper. Due to the heavy fire conditions and the structural integrity of the building, firefighters were forced to use exterior operations to control this fire. A second and third alarm were dispatched to help control this fire. At this time fire department units are still on the scene and expect to be for most of the night.

No injuries have been reported and the cause and origin of the fire are under investigation.

Updates will be given as they become available.

UPDATE (March 18):

The suspect in the March 14 shooting in Randallstown that left a woman injured has died. He has been identified as 30-year-old Taavon T Gilliam.

Police have identified the victim as 29-year-old Madonna Nicole Gilliam of the 9600 block of Axehead Court in Randallstown. Her current condition is unknown.


Original release (March 14):

At 6:55 a.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire Personnel responded to a home in the 9600 block of Axehead Court in Randallstown for a report of a shooting. Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered an adult female with at least one gunshot wound to the upper body. She was transported to Shock Trauma with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the victim and the suspect were having some sort of interaction in front of the home. During that interaction, the suspect shot the victim at least once in the upper body. The suspect then fled the scene.

Officers later approached a car that the suspect was in at a location in Baltimore City. When they went up to the car, they found that he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Sinai Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

The victim and the suspect were married and lived at the location. However, the suspect had been staying at another location for the past several weeks.

The Baltimore City Police Department is conducting the investigation into the self-inflicted gunshot wound.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Violent Crimes Unit. Further information will be released as it becomes available.

Timothy Howard Virts has been returned to Maryland and has been officially charged with the March 6 murder of Bobbi Jo Cortez in Dundalk. He is being interviewed by homicide detectives and then will be sent to the Baltimore County Detention Center where he is to be held without bail.

On the morning of March 6, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to a home in the 3100 block of Ardee Way 21222 for a cardiac arrest. First responders found Bobbie Jo Cortez, deceased, in her bedroom. Police were called after one of the occupants of the house had found Mrs. Cortez, deceased. The investigation has not yet determined when Mrs. Cortez was last seen alive, though detectives have confirmed that she was alive on March 5.

At about the same time, the occupants of the house discovered that Caitlyn and Timothy Virts were missing, along with a Dodge Durango. An Amber Alert was then issued for Caitlyn Marie Virts.

On March 7, Caitlyn and Timothy Virts were located in a motel in Florence, South Carolina. Timothy Virts was taken into custody by local police and Caitlyn was taken by local social services officials. Caitlyn appeared to be unharmed and was returned to Maryland on March 8.
