Original release (February 18, 2016  7:20 a.m.):

Baltimore County Police are investigating a police involved shooting in the Essex precinct area.

At approximately 2 a.m. this morning, an officer on patrol stopped a vehicle suspected to be involved in narcotics activity at Old Eastern Avenue and Harrison Avenue 21220. A male passenger exited the vehicle and began to walk towards Eastern Boulevard, but stopped. The vehicle turned onto Harrison Avenue and pulled into a position parallel to the officer’s car.

During an interaction with the officer, the man who had been the passenger in the vehicle suddenly placed his hand into his waistband area and turned toward the officer. This caused the officer to fear that the suspect was armed with a weapon and that his life was in imminent danger. The officer fired his weapon, striking the man at least once.

The man was taken to an area hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown.

No officers were injured during this incident. The officer involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative status while the incident is reviewed.

The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody and the vehicle was towed from the scene.

Suspected narcotics were recovered at the scene. A weapon was not recovered.

This incident is under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit. After the investigation is complete it will be reviewed by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office.
