Baltimore County Police detectives are investigating a vehicle pursuit that started in Harford County and ended with the death of the suspect.

On August 20, at 8:02 p.m., Harford County Sheriff deputies were investigating suspicious activity in the area of Route 7 and MD-152 when they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a red Ford Ranger pick-up truck. The truck operated by an adult male suspect fled from the deputies. The Harford County Sheriff deputies then pursued the truck out of Harford County into Baltimore County west-bound down Route 7 and north-bound on Cowenton Ave., 21128. Baltimore County Police patrol units were notified and responded to the area to assist. The suspect then drove the truck completely around the traffic circle at the intersection of East Joppa Road and Cowenton Avenue, and began to drive south-bound. The truck then drove across the median at the intersection and crashed into a marked Baltimore County Police car that was responding to assist.

The suspect vehicle and the Baltimore County Police car were both disabled at the location. Harford County deputies confronted the suspect who resisted arrest. Deputies were then forced to use their tasers to control and take the suspect into custody. Shortly after being handcuffed, the suspect was initially talking to the law enforcement officers and suddenly began to have a medical emergency. First-Aid was immediately rendered and Baltimore County paramedics responded to the scene. The suspect was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced deceased at 9:05 p.m. .

The suspect is not being identified at this time pending notification of the next of kin.

Preliminary evidence gathered at the scene indicated that the suspect may have ingested a controlled dangerous substance. The suspect's body will be transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

The Harford County Sheriff deputies and Baltimore County Police officers involved in this incident were not injured. The Baltimore County Police car suffered major damage making it inoperable.

This incident is being investigated by Baltimore County Police homicide detectives because the death occurred in Baltimore County. There are no additional details available at this time.

Baltimore County Police are investigating an accident on Belair Road in Overlea Road last night that left a man deceased.

At 8:57 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the area of Belair Road and Fuller Avenue for a report of a pedestrian that had been struck by a car. When they arrived on the scene, officers found a seriously injured pedestrian. The pedestrian was transported to Franklin Square Hospital where he later died.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the pedestrian was crossing Belair Road just north of Elm Avenue when he was struck by a 2004 Hyundai Sonata that had been traveling north-bound on Belair Road. The Hyundai remained at the scene.

The pedestrian has been identified as 53-year-old Gary Leahey of the 7900 block of St Gregory Drive 21222.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crash Team.

The Baltimore County Fire Department this fall will conduct two sessions of its five-week emergency preparedness program for citizens.

"Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a multi-section, all-hazards program that includes interactive lectures and practical instruction. The program is designed to help citizens learn how to help their families and communities get through the first 72 hours following disasters such as tropical storms, blizzards and extended water and power outages.

Experts from local public safety agencies will conduct the training. Topics include natural and technological disasters, fire safety, crime prevention, CPR and first aid, and community preparedness.

Participants are expected to attend a two-hour session once a week for five consecutive weeks. All classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.

One session begins September 9 at the Providence VFC in Towson. The second session begins October 14 at the Pikesville VFC.
