Cops are still searching for a Suspect in Baltimore County
Baltimore County officers were called to a home on Powers Avenue in Cockeysville Wednesday afternoon and a family member escorted them to the person in crisis, police said in a statement. As officers interacted with Linthicum, he fired multiple shots, wounding one officer, police spokeswoman Joy Stewart said. The officers did not fire their weapons during that interaction, she said.
The injured officer was taken to a hospital and authorities announced Wednesday night that the officer has been released and in good spirits. There was a heavy police presence in the area with helicopters hovering overhead Wednesday as officials closed roads in the neighborhood of single-family homes with large yards that spill into woods, media reported. Authorities urged residents to shelter in place as the search for the man continued overnight.
Officials announced early Thursday that several schools in the area would be closed for the day. The search continued until Thursday night when police ordered residents near the Cockeysville home to shelter in place because they had seen Linthicum in the area. Then, around 9:30 p.m., authorities said an officer was seriously injured in another shooting as police continued to search for the suspect.
