Original release (November 24, 2015  12:05 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police are investigating a police involved shooting in Dundalk this morning.

Just after 5 a.m., police responded to North Boundary Road and Creek Road 21222 for a report of a suicidal subject. Officers were able to locate the subject, a man in his early 20s, standing on top of a concrete wall on the Wise Avenue Bridge holding a large butcher knife to his throat. A beanbag gun and taser were requested to respond to the scene along with a medic unit.

An officer talked with the man and was able to get him to get off of the wall and put the knife on top of the wall. However the man remained in front of the wall and was highly agitated.

Officers used a beanbag gun and two tasers in an attempt to bring the man under control; however, they had minimal effect on him. The man then took the knife from the wall and swung it at officers. One officer fired a single shot at the man, which struck him in the left wrist.

The man was taken to an area hospital for treatment and evaluation. His current condition is unknown.

The officer involved in the shooting will be on administrative status while the incident is reviewed.

The incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit. The Homicide Unit investigates all police involved shootings.
