Maryland State trooper fatally shoots man in Frederick area.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A state trooper fatally shot a man in a confrontation Monday after the sport utility vehicle the man was driving rammed a police cruiser at a gas station, police said. A Maryland State Police trooper had pulled into the store’s parking lot and was going into the store when he noticed a gold Lincoln Navigator with expired tags. The incident began when the trooper decided to run the SUV’s license plate number after exiting the Sheetz just before 9 a.m., Shipley said according to ABC2.

A check of the plates through the state’s motor vehicle records turned up the report of the robbery in Baltimore, said state police spokesman Greg Shipley. At the same time, an officer with Frederick’s police department was approaching the scene in an unmarked car with his emergency lights on when the SUV rammed into him.

Baltimore police reported that when the car was stolen Sunday, the thief showed the owner a handgun in his waistband and told him to back off, Shipley said. Shipley said he did not have any information at this time as to whether the suspect brandished a gun, and he did not know if a weapon had been found at the scene.
