Just before 11 a.m. on December 25, 2019, Baltimore County Police were called to a home located in the 7900-block of Tilmont Avenue, 21234, for a disturbance. Police arrived and found a man suffering from an apparent stab wound to the upper body. The man was identified as William Daniel Barry, 63, of the 7900-block of Tilmont Avenue, 21234. Barry was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

The subsequent investigation determined that William Barry had an argument with the family member inside the house. The two individuals lived together and were the only two inside the house at the time of the incident. During the argument, Barry punched the female family member several times on her face, knocking her to the floor. Barry eventually walked away from the woman and she was able to grab a knife. Barry started to approach the woman again at which time she stabbed Barry. This case will be reviewed by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office to determine if the woman will face any charges from this incident.
