Baltimore County Police have become aware of and are investigating a 2:24 video depicting an altercation between an officer and a male civilian in Towson.

Police have determined that the incident occurred at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, February 23, when on-duty officers witnessed a disturbance among several members of a large crowd in the 400 block of York Road. Officers at the scene included Baltimore County Police, Baltimore County Auxiliary Police and Maryland State Police; it is unclear whether other agencies also were involved.

At least two people -- a male and a female -- were arrested and charged with resisting arrest, disturbing the peace, second-degree assault and  drug charges.

The video shows an officer confronting a male who is filming the arrests. The person filming the incident was not arrested and has not come forward to file a complaint. BCoPD has begun an investigation of this incident and would like to talk to the person who was filming so that a complete picture of what happened can be constructed. Recognizing that a video often represents only a small part of an incident, investigators want to know more about what happened before and after the events depicted on the video.

BCoPD recognizes and respects the right of citizens to film officers on duty, in a public place, unless the person filming has violated some law or statute.

Update, February 10: The suspects in this shooting are Christopher Carl Green, 22, of the 6800 block of Eastridge Road, 21208; and Elmer Shelton Blackwell Jr., 21, of the 3100 block of Betlou James Place, 21207. Green is charged with first degree assault (for attempting to use his vehicle to run over a Woodlawn officer), resisting arrest and various gun and drug charges; he is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center. Blackwell is charged with resisting arrest and various gun and drug charges; he was released on $75,000 bail.

The Baltimore County Police Department is currently investigating a shooting that occurred last night in the Woodlawn Precinct.

On February 6, at approximately 7:24 p.m., police responded to the 6800 block of Townbrook Drive, 21207 in reference to gunshots heard in the area. Police investigation revealed that suspects in a dark colored vehicle were possibly responsible for shooting at an unknown victim who was last seen running away from the scene toward Windsor Boulevard. Police were also able to locate shell casings at the scene.

After a brief search of the surrounding area, officers located a vehicle fitting the description of the suspect vehicle. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle; however, the suspects inside the vehicle attempted to elude the police officers. A brief pursuit ensued and with the assistance of the Baltimore County Police helicopter, the two unidentified male suspects were arrested in the area of Eastridge Road and Huntington Drive, 21207. Police recovered a handgun from the vehicle. The suspects were transported back to the Woodlawn Precinct.

The victim in this case has not been identified at this time.

The death of a woman found in her home on December 4 has now been ruled a homicide by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. 

At 11:45 a.m., police and fire personnel responded to a home in the 1200 block of Carli Court, 21228, and found 39 year old Jacqueline Taylor unresponsive. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was later pronounced deceased. The victim was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and her death was ruled a homicide on December 8.

An arrest warrant has been issued; however, the suspect has not been formally arrested. The suspect is currently incarcerated on an unrelated offense and will be charged upon his release in that case. Investigators believe this homicide is domestic in nature. 

The suspect's name will be released after he is charged.
