Police officer shot in Maryland has died


Baltimore County police Officer Amy Caprio was killed Monday afternoon while investigating a call about a suspicious vehicle in the Perry Hall community northeast of Baltimore, authorities said.

Sheridan and the officer's colleagues were at the hospital providing support to the officer's loved ones. Harris was expected to appear in court for a bail review later on Tuesday.

Residents in the area of Belair Road and Klausmeier Road, in Perry Hall, Maryland, were advised to shelter in place. About a block away from the Jeep, police officers found a teenager matching a description of the driver provided by a 911 caller.

"There were reports on her being run over or being shot or both, but that will not be confirmed until the autopsy is complete", Baltimore County Police Department spokesman Matt Kuhn said in a phone interview.

Logan Kurek, who is a volunteer firefighter, said he heard his younger brother "frantically screaming" and ran outside to perform CPR on the officer.

"Our prayers go out to this courageous officer's family, @BACOPoliceFire, and the Baltimore County community", a portion of Gov. Hogan's tweet said. He says it clearly shows Harris accelerating a stolen Jeep at Caprio after she was trying to apprehend him on the suburban cul-de-sac where a burglary had just taken place.

The officer was fatally wounded while investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle in a greater Baltimore suburb.

Vinson added that she immediately received treatment after neighbors called authorities, but was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital.
