Officer's death: Searching at night for suspects

Suspect at Large After Baltimore Police Officer Run Over in Armed Confrontation, Say Witnesses

Authorities have recovered the suspect's abandoned jeep, but Vinson did not confirm whether it was used to injure the officer.

Volunteer firefighter Logan Kurek says he ran outside and performed CPR on the officer until paramedics arrived, and says her injuries were consistent with being run over by a vehicle.

"It does appear that this may have been a burglary in progress", said Corporal Shawn Vinson with Baltimore County Police.

A statement of probable cause dated Tuesday identified the suspect as Dawnta Anthony Harris of Baltimore and the officer as Amy Caprio.

A 16-year-old boy charged in the death of a Maryland police officer told detectives he drove at her when she confronted him as he waited in a vehicle while others were burglarizing a home, according to court documents.

But the vehicle rammed the officer, the account said.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said United States and Maryland flags will fly at half-staff until Caprio is laid to rest.

The officer, who has not been identified, responded to Linwen Way in the community of Perry Hall around 2 p.m. after dispatch received a call regarding a potential burglary with four suspects, according to police.

Vinson said the family of the officer, who would have been a four-year veteran in July, has been notified.

The suspects are still at large, according to Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence Sheridan.

Baltimore County's public safety department tweeted Tuesday morning that the teenagers are suspects in area burglaries.

Kurek said his other son, who is a volunteer firefighter, then performed CPR on her while they called 911. But they confirmed a homicide investigation was underway.

Events began unfolding Monday afternoon in the leafy neighborhood of single-family homes. A witness Monday said he saw her get hit by a vehicle.

Kurek's neighbor, Dahle Amendt, said he had just settled into his recliner for a rest when he heard a woman's voice outside his house.

Sheridan also said police were reviewing footage from a body camera worn by the officer.

"Get out of the car!' at least three times, and then a pop", Amendt said.

A 16-year-old male was arrested earlier Tuesday morning in connection with the death of a Maryland police officer on Monday, after the officer was shot and possibly run over, and later died, officials said Tuesday. It's a quiet community.

He says police from several agencies backed by federal law enforcement are widely searching the area for "multiple suspects" who are possibly armed. "It's just so sad", Amendt said.

Students at three local elementary schools are being held inside their buildings on alert status because of the police activity.

Investigators urged residents in a sizable swath of Perry Hall to stay hunkered down inside their homes and lock all doors and windows as officers searched the community fringed with woodlands. Parents are being told to contact school administrators for further instructions.
