6/16/22—A Baltimore County police car sits outside of the Public Safety Building and Police Department in Towson.

Baltimore County police shot a man still in his vehicle Tuesday morning at the Royal Farms at the intersection of Ebenezer Road and Pulaski Highway.

Joy Stewart, a police spokesperson, said officers attempted to apprehend a man and woman wanted by police, shortly after 6 a.m. The two were inside a Kia SUV after their vehicle allegedly struck a police detective’s car in White Marsh.

After the man’s vehicle also collided with a civilian vehicle, a detective discharged a weapon, striking the man. He is in critical condition now at Bayview Hospital, police said.

No officers were injured at the scene. The officer-involved shooting is under investigation by the department’s Criminal Investigations Bureau, while members of the Police Crash Team handle the crash investigation.

Police did not immediately say why they were seeking the couple.
