UPDATE (June 10):

The officer involved in the June 7 shooting in Parkville is Officer Rogers, an 18 year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department assigned to the Support Operations Division.

Officer Rogers responded to a home in the 2900 block of Manns Avenue 21234 at 10:45 p.m. June 7 for a domestic. While at the location, 39-year-old Michael Tindall Jr came out of the home with a handgun and refused officers orders to drop the weapon. Both Michael Tindall Jr and Officer Rogers fired. Michael Tindall Jr was struck. Officer Rogers was not.

Michael Tindall Jr remains hospitalized.

This incident remains under investigation.

Original release (June 8):

 At 10:45 p.m., officers were dispatched to a home in the 2900 block of Manns Avenue, 21234 for a domestic call. The caller advised that her husband was suicidal and had a gun. When officers arrived on scene, they began to communicate with the suspect. The suspect came outside the house armed with a handgun and he failed to follow officer commands to drop the weapon. Both the suspect and the officer fired, and the suspect was struck. The officer was not injured. 

39 year old Michael Tindall Jr. was transported to the hospital and he is currently listed in critical condition. The weapon was recovered on scene. 

Per policy, the 18 year veteran officer involved has been placed on administrative leave. 

Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson has announced a number of new command assignments that take effect tomorrow, April 1.

  • Woodland M. Wilson III will be promoted from the rank of Captain to the rank of Major. Captain Wilson oversees BCoPD’s Operations Support Section, including K-9 and the Tactical Unit. As a Major, he will oversee Support Operations Division, including the Tactical Unit and K-9 as well as Aviation, the Hostage Negotiation Team, the Behavioral Assessment Unit, the Marine Team and Traffic.
  • Major Daniel Kaliszak will command BCoPD’s Technical Services Division. Major Kaliszak currently is assigned to Support Operations.
  • Captain Gordon Skinner, currently commander of Precinct 8/Parkville, will command the Vice/Narcotics Section.
  • Captain Jay Landsman Jr., currently assigned to the Vice/Narcotics Section, will command Precinct 6/Towson.
  • Captain Lisa Hannon, currently assigned to the Operations Bureau, will command Precinct 8/Parkville.
  • Captain Richard Howard, currently commander of Precinct 6/Towson, will be assigned to the Operations Bureau.

The changes follow the retirement last month of Major Karen Johnson.

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.
