Robber Killed, Police Officer and Civilian Wounded in Shootout Caught on Camera

Warning Graphic — Baltimore County police killed a robbery suspect and an officer was seriously wounded in a midafternoon shootout Wednesday on busy Dundalk Avenue, police said.

A bystander was also shot in the incident near the Logan Village Shopping Center shortly before 3 p.m., police said.

Police said the man robbed two people in the shopping center parking lot, then hopped onto a No. 10 MTA bus.

But he wouldn’t make it far: Officers stopped the bus a block away, police said, near the intersection of Dundalk Avenue and Belclare Road. As people shopped for groceries and had their nails done, and nearby schools prepared to dismiss children for the day, the man opened fire, police said.

Officers returned fire, police said. A video posted on Facebook shows a man shooting at police from an MTA bus and then from behind a white van. The incident ended in minutes, with the gunman dead on a lawn.
