On August 28, 2013, at approximately 5:00 a.m Officer Jason Schneider was shot and killed while serving a search warrant at a home on Roberts Avenue, in Catonsville.
Officer Schneider was part of the tactical team that had entered the house in search of a juvenile subject wanted in relation to a shooting the previous week. The entry team encountered four subjects inside the home who attempted to flee. Officer Schneider was pursuing a subject towards the rear of the house when another subject attacked him and opened fire, striking him several times.
Despite being mortally wounded, Officer Schneider returned fire and killed the subject.
Two juveniles, including the subject they were originally searching for, were later charged with weapons violations.
