Baltimore County Police are confirming an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct at the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company in Precinct 3/Franklin.

The investigation began in mid-January, after Baltimore County Fire Department officials became aware of possible misconduct at the Reisterstown VFC and notified police.

Yesterday, the Baltimore County Fire Department suspended without pay two male fire department employees who are also Reisterstown VFC members. Both were suspended after the execution of a search warrant. One is a Probationary Emergency Medical Technician; the other is an EMT/Firefighter. These are non-supervisory positions.

There are 35 volunteer fire companies in Baltimore County that work with the Fire Department to provide fire suppression and EMS services. These volunteer companies are independent corporations with their own boards of directors and command staffs.

The investigation remains ongoing and is expected to conclude within the next few weeks. No charges have been filed at this time.

BCoPD detectives are investigating the non-fatal shooting of a 25-year-old man who walked in to Northwest Hospital early Saturday morning.

Police responded to the hospital at about 4:20 a.m. The victim told detectives he was operating an illegal taxi service when he picked up several males who were walking along Reisterstown and Hammershire roads in Precinct 3/Franklin.  The victim said there was an argument over money, and that one of the suspects shot him in the thigh. The victim said he drove himself to the hospital.

The investigation is ongoing.
