    Police Investigating Homicide in Catonsville

    The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating a double shooting that left one man dead in the 7000-block of Upper Mills Circle, 21228.

    On September 15, at 5:54 p.m., a Baltimore County Police supervisor was in the area of Johnnycake Road and Upper Mills Circle, 21228, when he heard the sounds of gunshots. The police officer investigated the sounds and found a male victim running down the street suffering from at least one gunshot to the back. Police were able to determine that the suspects had fled the area in a red van and broadcasted the information to other police units in the area. Police officers located the red van fleeing westbound on Route 40 West (The Baltimore National Pike) towards the Howard County line. The suspects driving the red van crashed into numerous vehicles, including police cars while fleeing from the crime scene. Baltimore County Police were able to get the van stopped and took the two male suspects into custody on Route 40 at the Baltimore County/Howard County line at the bridge.

    There were two male victims, one was found deceased inside a car in the 7000-block of Upper Mills Circle. The second victim, who was found running from the scene by police was transported to a local hospital for treatment. His condition at this time is unknown. There were no injuries to the police involved in the pursuit and apprehension.

    The two male suspects were taken to a police facility, where they will face murder charges along with a list of other charges. Baltimore County Homicide investigators are handling this case.

On February 1 at 10:54 p.m., Baltimore County Police responded to the unit block of Straw Hat Road for a report of a robbery.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the 40-year-old male victim was in front of his apartment building when he was approached by two suspects. They pushed him down and kicked him in the head. The suspects took the victim’s wallet that contained $700 before fleeing the scene.

The suspects are described as black males between the ages of 20 and 29. One suspect was short and stocky with a gray and white striped shirt. The other suspect was taller and wore all dark clothing. The suspects were later caught on video surveillance at a nearby gas station. Surveillance photos of the suspects are posted below.

The victim received minor injuries as a result of the incident but he was not transported to a medical facility.

This incident is being investigated by the Franklin Precinct Investigative Services Team.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson today said that the investigation of a February 23 incident in Towson, captured on a citizen’s video, will examine the actions of a citizen auxiliary police officer as well as of BCoPD officers.

“The words of and demands to cease filming by sworn personnel and citizen volunteer auxiliary officers were incorrect, inappropriate and unnecessary,” Chief Johnson said this morning. “They were not helpful in bringing this incident to closure. As we already have stated, all aspects of this encounter are under investigation, and all personnel will be held accountable for their actions.”

The auxiliary sergeant – seen in the video confronting the young man recording the incident and telling him he “lost” his rights – has been restricted to administrative volunteer duties pending the outcome of the investigation.  His name is being withheld pending the outcome of the investigation. He has been a member of the Auxiliary for 22 years.

 BCoPD also will review the actions of BCoPD supervisors involved in the incident depicted in the video of the incident in the 400 block of York Road at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, when officers from several agencies worked to control a disturbance.

Johnson, who reviewed the video multiple times, said the language used by officers in the video and the statements about the citizen’s lack of constitution rights are simply wrong.  “This Department enjoys a good  relationship with its citizens largely because of its longstanding commitment to treating people with respect for their rights. Our personnel will be held accountable if they fail to do that,” he said.

The person filming the video, who was not arrested, has not filed a complaint and has not approached BCoPD. Investigators are trying to identify and contact him because they believe his story will help them build a complete picture of what happened.

The question of whether citizens may record video of police officers was settled by the Maryland courts several years ago. Since that ruling, BCoPD has directed its personnel to respect the legal right of citizens to record officers on duty, in a public place, unless the person filming has violated a law or statute. BCoPD’s command staff reminded sworn supervisors of this legal right this morning.

About the Auxiliary Police

About 80 trained citizens volunteer as auxiliary police officers, providing support to BCoPD with regard to patrol, calls for service, crowd and traffic control, community events and details.

Citizen auxiliary members attend about 115 hours of training provided by BCoPD and modeled after – though less comprehensive than – the training for BCoPD officers. This training is commensurate with the level of responsibility and authority delegated to these volunteers.

Over the past six years, citizens volunteering as auxiliary members have donated more than 100,000 hours of service to the County.  “These ordinary citizens provide a tremendous service to us, at no cost,” Johnson said. “They have played an important role in our efforts to reduce crime in Baltimore County, and have been an invaluable resource for us in handling everything from precinct office work to traffic control.”
