At 1:52 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the 10500 Block of York Road in Cockeysville for a report of a gas leak. 

Construction workers had broken a gas line while working in the area. There have been no reports of injuries at this time. 

Because of the gas leak, the traffic pattern on York Road between Warren Road and Railroad Avenue is being altered. Both north-bound and south-bound traffic on York Road will run in the south-bound lanes in this area. North-bound lanes will be closed. 

This altered traffic pattern is expected to cause a significant backup. Motorists are encouraged to find an alternate route around the area. 

BG&E crews are on the scene but have no estimated time in which repairs will be made.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
