Gunman Emerges from Crowd, Shoots Off-Duty Officer

The following information was supplied by the Baltimore County Police Department. In cases where a criminal charge is noted, the information provided does not indicate a conviction.

An off-duty Baltimore County Police Department officer was shot twice in the Overlea area Sunday morning after a gunman emerged from a crowd.

At 3:24 a.m. police found the officer, suffering from two gunshot wounds, at Dale Avenue and Danwood Road, according to a report from Baltimore County police.

Police found out that a "large group of people" had been blocking the street, and that the off-duty officer had "stopped his vehicle and asked them to move so he could pass," the report states.

"A male emerged from the crowd with a gun and fired several shots into the victim's car, striking him twice," it states.

The officer was taken to Shock Trauma with non-life threatening injuries, and was released.

"Investigators believe that the incident was random and the officer was not targeted," the news release states. 

Police had investigated an earlier incident in that area.

At 3:17 a.m. they went to Dale and Kenwood avenues for the report of a fight.

Police continue to investigate. To report information, call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020.

This might be the funniest series of posts yet. Just admit that you are amazed at the turn of events. Another crazy white boy committed mass murder with semi-automatics, who after the deed was done and the adrenaline tailed off decided to do the only sensible thing and kill himself. Hate each other if you want but there are more serious issues for right now.

You sound like this is a ball game. Look guys! See what this white dude just did. See were winning now. Take a count. Mental illness was a major factor and from some reports it might have been personal. He killed his mother and then killed all of those she taught. You cannot predict insanity and it bears no color.
