Residents of a Parkville community sheltered in place for several hours this afternoon as Baltimore County Police investigated a report of a possible hazardous device.

The police investigation began this morning when a concerned citizen contacted officers with specific details of possible hazardous devices at a neighborhood home. At 12:19 p.m., police responded to a home in the 3100 block of Texas Avenue in Precinct 8/Parkville to check the house.

Police set up a "safe zone" around the house as a precaution; directed residents in the immediate vicinity to shelter in place; and requested the BCoPD Hazardous Devices Team. The Fire Department's hazmat unit also responded.

Hazardous Devices personnel conducted a thorough search of the home and found no hazardous devices.

No one was inside the home during the search.

During a search of the neighborhood, police located a man who lives at the Texas Avenue address; they continue to question him. The investigation is ongoing.

UPDATE (September 16 9:03 a.m.):

Baltimore County detectives are continuing to investigate this incident. The person that was injured is expected to survive.

Further information, to include the names of the persons charged in connection with this incident, will be released when it becomes available.

Original release (September 15):

The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating a double shooting that left one man deceased 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 wound. 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. Officers 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 the case.

No additional information is available at this time.

UPDATE (September 16):

Baltimore County Police have identified the person found deceased in the 9000 block of Pulaski Highway Saturday as 66-year-old Clinton Edward Russell, a homeless person who frequented the area.

At 2:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the area of the 9000 block of Pulaski Highway for a report of a cardiac arrest. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Clinton Edward Russell lying on top of a pile of rocks, covered by a blanket. A portion of the victim’s head appeared to be under a part of a rock.

An officer that responded to the scene recognized Clinton Edward Russell as a homeless person that frequented the area.

Clinton Edward Russell’s body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an Autopsy. While the autopsy is not yet final, investigators do not suspect foul play.
