Baltimore County Police investigate a fight that led to a man’s death in Halethorpe.

Just after 2:30 a.m. on May 3, Baltimore County Police were called to a home located in the 2000 block of Northeast Avenue, 21227 for a call of shots fired. Police arrived and found a man unresponsive inside the home.  Medics responded to the scene and pronounced the man dead. The decedent was identified as Brian Michael Katuthat (41) of the same address listed above.

The investigation determined that Katuthat and another male resident got into a physical confrontation. Soon after the fight ended, Katuthat fired a shotgun round through the man's bedroom door. Katuthat entered the bedroom and began assaulting the male resident. This caused another physical altercation that ultimately led to Katuthat’s death.

This case will be reviewed by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office to determine if the resident will face any charges from this incident. Baltimore County Police Homicide Detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding this event.
