MD: Officer killed responding to suspicious vehicle

A manhunt was underway Monday evening in Baltimore County, Maryland, for four suspects involved in the killing of a police officer, who confronted them after responding to a report of a burglary, authorities said.

Cpl. Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for the Baltimore County Police Department, said he could not confirm the governor's statement that the officer was shot. "We probably won't know for sure until an autopsy is performed", Vinson said, KCRA reported.

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

The officer was not immediately identified. Authorities have not released her name.

Caprio was a four-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department. Our prayers go out to this courageous officer's family, @BACOPoliceFire, and the Baltimore County community, ' he wrote Monday afternoon. We're seeing police officers assaulted. A number of officers who have died in the line of duty is up this year. Gunshots were heard and the Jeep ran over the officer, Tony Kurek told WBAL-TV. "And so we're telling everybody to be on your toes, don't be complacent, to work with each other".

He says police from several agencies backed by federal law enforcement are widely searching the area for "multiple suspects" who are possibly armed.

Hogan offered his condolences via Twitter.

The officer is the 11th to die in the line of duty in Baltimore County, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, which showed a tally of 10 prior to Monday's incident.

"We are proud of the bravery and the courage and the sacrifice of all the men and women who serve in our police force", Jones said. No one should lose his or her life at the hands of another while trying to protect our communities.

Sheridan said the slain officer was wearing a body camera and the footage was being reviewed.

Police said the four suspects are all teenaged males.

Police said the other three suspects are linked to burglaries in the area. Police also warned people to avoid driving along Belair Road from Forge Road to Ebenezer Road.
