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.

Baltimore County Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred on November 22 at 4:04 p.m. at Towson Town Center.

Preliminary investigation shows that the victim was in the men's bathroom, near the food court, when two male suspects displayed a knife and demanded his money and cell phone. The victim complied, and then chased the suspects through the food court and into the third floor of the mall.

The victim caught up with one of the suspects and pinned him against the wall outside the Call It Spring store. A plainclothes security guard responded to assist the victim, and the second suspect returned to assist the first suspect. A physical struggle followed, and one of the suspects displayed a handgun. Both suspects fled, using an exit near the Littman jewelry store.

The victim was not injured.

The suspects are black males, 18 to 20 years old, with medium builds. One was wearing a black baseball cap, backwards; and a black Polo jacket with Polo horse insignia. The other was wearing a black leather jacket, dark jeans and dark hoodie.

Anyone with information should call police at 410-307-2020.
