Update (February 3, 2014): The name of the officer involved in this shooting is Schupple. His rank is Officer, and he has been with BCoPD for 15 years. Per BCoPD's agreement with the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #4, this is the only information that will be released about this officer.

Police are investigating a non-fatal police-involved shooting this morning involving a Cockeysville man who assaulted his 72-year-old stepfather, his 69-year-old mother and a Cockeysville police officer.

Police responded at 10:26 a.m. to the 300 block of Wellingborough Way  for an unknown trouble call involving a subject who possibly was suffering from a mental and/or medical problem.

Police arrived to find an adult man in the second-floor  apartment that he shares with his mother and stepfather; the man was physically assaulting his elderly stepfather who displayed physical injuries. When the Cockeysville officer attempted to intervene and subdue the man, the man physically attacked the officer. The officer retreated to the hallway and down the stairs and was followed by the man, who violently assaulted the officer again in the first-floor vestibule.

At this point, injured and fearing for  his life, the officer fired several rounds from his service weapon, striking the suspect. 

BCoFD medical crews provided treatment at the  scene and transported the suspect to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. 


The officer, the stepfather and mother all were transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the  fight with the suspect.

 Preliminary investigation shows that this morning the two older people became involved in a dispute with the suspect over his care and living arrangements, and that the dispute escalated to the point where the suspect began physically assaulting them.

The suspect, whose name is not being released at this time, is not believed to have been armed.

The Homicide Unit investigates all police-involved shootings. Per BCoPD policy, the Cockeysville officer will be  placed on routine administrative leave during the investigation. His last name and assignment will be released later this week, per BCoPD's agreement with the local police union.

Police have identified a man found dead in a northern Baltimore County field late Sunday night as Lemuel Rent, 83, of the 17000 block of Prettyboy Dam Road in Precinct 7/Cockeysville.

Rent had been reported missing by his family on Saturday evening. After an extensive search by police, his body was found at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday night in a field in the 17000 block of Bruehl Road in Precinct 7. He was located about 200 yards from his truck.

The death is not being investigated as suspicious. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will rule on the cause and manner of death.

Robert David WrightA  35-year-old Cockeysville man who is a youth group leader at a Baltimore County church has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Robert David Wright, of the 10000 block of Hillgreen Circle, 21030, is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $150,000 bail.

An investigation by BCoPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit found that Wright had downloaded to his home computer thousands of pornographic images of female babies, toddlers and prepubescent girls, including images of children being raped.

The investigation shows that Wright shared these images electronically with other users.

Wright is a youth group leader at Clynmalira United Methodist Church, 2920 Stockton Road, Phoenix.  There is no evidence at this time that any of the children pictured in the photos and videos recovered at Wright’s residence were members of Clynmalira UMC, or that Wright sexually abused children himself.  However, the investigation is ongoing, and detectives are still reviewing the vast amount of pornographic material seized from this suspect’s home.

All images of child abuse recovered during investigations by the Crimes Against Children Unit are forwarded to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the nonprofit organization that serves as the clearinghouse nationally for information on missing and exploited children. This organization attempts to identify victims of child pornography.
