Original release (February 14 4:04 p.m.):

Late this morning, Maryland State Police pursued a Honda Pilot down I-95 after it failed to stop for a trooper. State Police broke off the pursuit around exit 47 when the vehicle drove across the median, across north-bound lanes, and exited the highway.

Baltimore County Police located the Honda Pilot in the Woodlawn area and attempted to stop it. When the vehicle failed to stop, officers pursued it onto east-bound I-695 and eventually onto route 702. At the intersection of route 702 and Hyde Park Road, the Honda Pilot struck a Honda Accord and stopped.

As officers approached the Honda Pilot, gunfire came from the vehicle, striking an officer. Officers then returned fire on the vehicle. The driver, an adult white male who was the only occupant of the vehicle, was declared deceased at the scene. The driver was found to have been armed with a handgun and other weapons.

The injured officer was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment. His ballistic vest stopped the round that struck him and he is expected to be released later today.

During this incident, six Baltimore County Police officers fired their weapons. Those officers will be placed on administrative status while the incident is reviewed.

An adult male and two 11-year-old females were in the Honda Accord that was struck by the Honda Pilot. They were not struck by gunfire and were taken to Franklin Square Hospital to be checked out. They are expected to be released shortly.
