Maryland State trooper fatally shoots man in Frederick area.

FREDERICK, Md. (WJZ) — The investigation is far from over after a state trooper shoots and kills a suspect in Frederick. 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. At the same time, an officer with Frederick’s police department was approaching the scene in an unmarked vehicle with his emergency lights on when the SUV rammed into him. We’ll have some drinks.’ He said, ‘What do you get into?’ I said, ‘I drink occasionally, but other than that, nothing.’ And he said, ‘I got you, buddy. 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 Verizon employee, working across the street from the gas station, said he witnessed the shooting. “I heard four gunshots, and when I looked up, I immediately saw a trooper or a police officer with his gun out”. Baltimore police reported that when the vehicle was stolen Sunday, the thief showed the owner a handgun in his waistband and told him to back off, Shipley said. When he ran the plates, it came up stolen from that robbery at gunpoint in Baltimore City. “The individual who then ran back to the driver’s door jumped inside his vehicle, started it and began to accelerate away. 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.
