Baltimore County officer killed in line of duty, authorities say

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

"They actually saw a black Jeep Wrangler and they saw that I guess it was a dead end street and they went to turn around and officers were following them".

Tony Kurek, who lives in the area in which the incident occurred, told 11 News that his son saw the officer try to pull over a Jeep and she had her gun drawn when the vehicle accelerated.

Officer Amy Caprio died Monday after confronting a person in a Jeep.

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

Witnesses said Purinton, who is white, was asked to leave the bar after uttering racial slurs at Kuchibhotla and Madasani, who were working as engineers at GPS-maker Garmin at the time.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan tweeted following early reports of the incident to offer prayers to the "brave officer's family".

The officer was responding to the suspicious vehicle report at around 2 p.m., when the shooting occurred, according to police.

"We are heartbroken to lose a member of Maryland's law enforcement family, Police Officer First Class Amy Caprio".

"We have the police family together and the officer's family together and all of us are now trying to work through this thing and hopefully resolve it as soon as we can", Sheridan said.

An intense manhunt was underway Tuesday morning for the three additional suspects, authorities said.

"She bravely made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and security of our citizens, and we all owe her a debt of gratitude for her selfless service", he said. The auto left skid marks, he said, and officer was on the ground bleeding.

Kurek said his other son, a volunteer firefighter, performed CPR on her while they called 911. Shawn Vinson said. The encounter may have begun as a burglary in progress, said Vinson, who added that one home on the block had damage to a patio door.

He added that a homicide investigation has been opened. He says she received significant injuries but said he had no immediate information about how she was wounded or whether she had fired her own weapon.

Amendt said his wife also ran outside and tried to revive the officer, to no avail. It was then that 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.

Witnesses interviewed by local television stations in the Baltimore area reported seeing a Jeep running over the officer, but police officials said they could not confirm any of the accounts and that her cause of death would not be determined until an autopsy was complete.

"I heard, 'Get out of the car!' 'Get out of the car!' Get out of the car!' at least three times, and then a pop", Amendt said. It's a quiet community. A large police presence can be seen across several locations along Belair Road while police collect evidence and search for at least one armed suspect.

Police spokeswoman Julia Hardgrove said the officer was injured while investigating a vehicle on Linwen Way in the community of Perry Hall.
