MOUNT AIRY, Md. (AP) — Authorities say police tried to stop a van involved in a burglary in western Maryland, but it rammed a police vehicle and a suspect died after being shot at by officers.
The Frederick County Sheriff's Office says police from a neighboring county were investigating burglaries in the region when they spotted one in progress and contacted the sheriff's office. The sheriff's office says in a statement that the officers were told to stop the suspect's vehicle.
The office says that during the stop, the van rammed a police vehicle and drove toward officers outside their vehicle. The sheriff's office says two officers fired and a male suspect was killed.
The sheriff's office says that another person, a female, is in custody. No identities were released and no officers were injured.
