One person is dead after being shot during a confrontation with Baltimore County Police officers Tuesday near a gas station in Pikesville, the Maryland Attorney General’s Office said.
The Attorney General’s Office and Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Joy Stewart did not immediately release the man’s age or identity, nor did it release the identities of the officers involved in the incident.
The incident happened just after 11:30 a.m., when officers responded to a 911 call about a domestic disturbance at a “local hotel” in the 500 block Reistertown Road, Stewart said.
Officers searched for the man, finding him a short time later at a gas station, Stewart said.
“He pointed a weapon at our officers, who retreated and declared a barricade situation,” Stewart said.
After a few minutes, the man left the gas station and “engaged our officers,” Stewart said.
Three officers, each of whom was wearing a functioning body camera, shot at the man, Stewart said. She did not say how many shots were fired.
Officers rendered aide to the man, who was taken to a hospital. The man died later in the day, Stewart said.
The shooting appeared to have happened at a BP gas station near Slade Avenue and Reisterstown Road. WJZ reported that a Baltimore County Police SUV with a back window appeared to have a bullet hole in it.
In an interview with WJZ, two witnesses said they heard multiple gunshots.
In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Baltimore County Police said that they would provide more information once they have it.
