Female officer fatally injured in Maryland; police still searching for suspects

Police are searching for at least one armed suspect after a Baltimore County police officer was fatally injured. Since Baltimore County Police have not confirmed that the officer was shot, the tweet was removed. She was taken to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center and died around 2:50 p.m., Vinson said.

Councilman David Marks said in a Facebook post that police informed him the officer was shot "while investigating suspicious activity".

There are multiple suspects and at least one is believed to be armed, according to Baltimore County authorities.

SkyTeam 11 Capt. Roy Taylor reported the suspect or suspects left the scene in a Jeep Wrangler, then bailed out of the auto in the area of Pine Hill and Belair roads. A number of officers who have died in the line of duty is up this year.

Police ordered residents in the area to shelter in place.

Tony Kurek, a resident who lives in the area of the incident, told WBAL-TV 11 that his son saw the officer try to pull over a Jeep and had her gun drawn when the vehicle accelerated.
