UPDATE (December 10):

Baltimore County Police have identified the man that died in the fire on Tricount Court early Tuesday morning as 75-year-old John Clark Johnson. He resided in the apartment in which the fire occurred.

The current conditions of the other people injured as a result of the fire are not known.

This incident remains under investigation by Baltimore County Police Department fire investigators. Investigators believe that there is nothing suspicious about the fire.

Original release (December 9):

An early morning apartment fire in Owings Mills has left one man deceased.

At 2 a.m., the Baltimore County Fire Department responded to the unit block of Tricount Court, 21117, in the Painters Mill Apartments, for a report of an apartment fire. When first-arriving fire personnel arrived on the scene, they found fire showing on the second floor and several people trapped.

Firefighters rescued a man and a woman from an apartment on the second floor. The woman, who firefighters helped walk from the building, was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center for treatment of serious injuries. Her current condition is unknown. The injured man was not conscious when firefighters carried from the apartment. He was transported to Northwest Hospital Center, where he later died. Police have not yet identified him.

Two other people drove themselves to Northwest Hospital Center for treatment of non life-threatening injuries. A volunteer firefighter was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Residents of other units were not displaced.

The fire was relatively small and contained to the second floor apartment. It was brought under control at 2:50 a.m. About 15 pieces of fire equipment and 60 firefighters responded to this scene.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department fire investigators. Police  do not believe this fire involved criminal activity.

Update (May 16):

Baltimore County Police are looking for persons who may be victims of crimes involving Vincent Davis Jr.
 
On May 2, police charged 43-year-old Vincent Davis Jr. of the 1400 block of Taylor Avenue in Parkville in connection with 10 burglaries in the Towson area. Many of the burglary victims were female Towson University students. Investigators believe that he was targeting young females as his victims.
 
As part of their investigation, detectives served a search and seizure warrant on Vincent Davis Jr.‘s Parkville home. Among the evidence recovered were personal items belonging to the female victims. The amount of property recovered is leading investigators to believe that some of the property is from unidentified or unreported incidents. Investigators believe that the time frame for the incidents may stretch as far back as 2010.
 
Vincent Davis Jr. has also been charged with a sex offense that occurred in the 1200 block of Taylor Avenue in 2013. In that incident, the investigation indicated that he forced a woman into the woods and sexually assaulted her. The victim in that case was able to break free from him and run.
 
Vincent Davis Jr. is a registered sex offender.
 
Detectives are looking to identify additional victims of burglary, theft, or sexual offenses involving Vincent Davis Jr.
 
Anyone with information or someone who thinks they might be a victim is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

Update, May 5, 2014: Vincent Davis Jr., 43, of the 1400 block of Taylor Avenue, 21234, has been charged with all 10 of these Precinct 6/Towson burglaries. Davis was arrested Friday by BCoPD detectives. He faces nine counts of first degree burglary and one count of attempted first-degree burglary. He is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The victims of these burglaries almost exclusively have been female. Most of the crimes have been committed during the nighttime hours, and in most cases the suspect has gained access through unlocked doors or windows.

Police strongly advise TU students, especially women, who live off campus to secure their doors and windows and report suspicious activity to police by calling 911.

Also make sure not to communicate to others via social media that you are not at home. Criminals may be watching.

The Burglary Unit’s investigation is active and ongoing; BCoPD has requested that Towson University Police make students aware of the situation.

There is no suspect description at this time, though detectives are pursuing various leads. Stolen items include jewelry, cash, medications and personal items.

The burglaries occurred on the following dates and at the following locations.

  • April 4: 1000 block Donnington Circle

On Thursday evening at 6:53 p.m., Baltimore County Fire Department units were dispatched to 1004 Wilson Point road, Middle River, for the report of an apartment fire.

Prior to the Fire Department's arrival, there were reports from a helicopter that there was a lot of smoke coming from the apartment building. The first units, from the Middle River Volunteer Fire Company, arrived at 6:56 p.m. and found fire showing from the first floor apartment located at 1004 Wilson Point road, with possible extension and people trapped on the second floor. A second alarm was requested at this time. The residents of the second floor apartment were able to self evacuate the apartment complex without the assistance from the fire department.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire in the first floor apartment quickly, containing it to that apartment; there was no extension into the second-floor apartment.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no reported injuries to civilians or firefighters on the scene.
