TOWSON, Maryland — Authorities say a Baltimore County police officer was wounded and a male suspect killed during a high-speed chase.
Authorities say the incident began Saturday morning when Maryland State Police attempted to stop a green Honda Pilot that was speeding. State Police stopped their chase on the Beltway and issued a bulletin, and Baltimore County police pursued the vehicle again a short while later. The chase ended at Route 702 and Hyde Park Road, where the suspect crashed into a silver sedan, then shot at police.
Police say the officer's injuries do not appear to be life-threatening and he is in fair condition. Police say the round that struck the officer was stopped by a ballistic vest.
The male suspect, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
