July 7, 2019

ROSEDALE, Md. (AP) — Police outside Baltimore say officers shot and killed a man who they were trying to arrest for shooting his ex-girlfriend earlier in the day.

Baltimore County Police say there was an exchange of gunfire Saturday night at Duke’s Motel in Rosedale as they attempted to enter the motel room.

The man suffered a gunshot wound and received treatment from medics who had staged nearby but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not identified him but they believe he is the same man who broke into his ex-girlfriend’s townhome earlier Saturday and shot her. She is expected to survive.

Police did not release the race of the man who died or the officers who fired shots.

No officers were injured.
