Date: Mar 18, 2014

UPDATE (March 19): Sean Johnson has been located unharmed.

Original release:

Police are asking for the public's help in locating a 42-year-old Randallstown man who has been missing since about  11:30 p.m. Monday, March 17.

He is Sean Johnson of the 9000 block of Meadow Heights Road, 21133.

Mr. Johnson spoke with his mother at about 10 p.m. Monday and said he was on his way home, but he never arrived.  He has never gone missing before.

Mr. Johnson is black, 5'10" and 225 pounds, with a small beard and short black hair. He may be wearing his work uniform, a purple Sinai Hospital shirt and an orange and white Sinai  jacket.

Anyone with information that might help police find Sean Johnson  should call police  as soon as possible at 410-307-2020.

UPDATE (March 20)
The Baltimore County Police officers involved in the shooting Tuesday have been identified:

  • Corporal Walsh – Assigned to Precinct 6 – With department for 11 years
  • Officer Mims – Assigned to Precinct 6 – With department for 6 years
  • Officer Robinson – Assigned to Precinct 6 – With department for 2 years

These officers have been placed on administrative status while the incident is reviewed.

UPDATE: The man shot by police this afternoon in Parkville has died at a local hospital. He has been identified as 21-year-old Ryan Charles Deitrich of the 8600 block of Oakleigh Road.

Deitrich was known to BCoPD. BCoPD dispatchers had a "hazard flag" on the Oakleigh Road address so that officers would know when they responded to this home that someone living there possibly posed a threat to his own or someone else's safety. Deitrich had been sent for an emergency evaluation by BCoPD in the past. Last January, Deitrich was charged with a variety of offenses, including first-degree assault and use of a dangerous weapon w/ intent to injure, after an incident in Baltimore County.

Original release:

At 1:11 p.m. today, police responded to the 8600 block of Oakleigh Road in Parkville for a "check on subject" call; someone who knew the subject, an adult male, was concerned and asked police to check on him. When police responded to the address, they found the man outside the home, threatening them with a knife.

Officers retreated down the street, to the intersection of Oakleigh and Trenleigh roads, but the man continued to come at them with the knife. Fearing for their lives, at least one of the officers discharged his or her service weapon; the man was struck multiple times.

The man, who has not yet been identified, suffered what appear to be life-threatening injuries. He was transported by BCoFD medic units to a nearby hospital.

Tactical units responded as a precaution to make sure no one else was inside the Oakleigh Road house.

All police-involved shootings are subject to a thorough internal review. Per BCoPD policy, the officers involved in today's incident will be placed on administrative duties pending this review.
