The man shot and killed by FBI agents Friday in Owings Mills has been identified, the Baltimore County Police Department reported Monday.

Jameel O. Harrison, 34, was shot by FBI agents in the 9700 block of Reisterstown Road at approximately 4:45 p.m. Friday, according to police.

Three FBI agents who had been working on a drug investigation confronted Harrison on the access road to the Walmart and Sam's Club shopping center, according to WJZ.

Harrison, who was driving a gray Infiniti SUV with New York plates, tried to back his way through traffic after agents surrounded him, The Baltimore Sun reported.

As a result of the confrontation, the vehicle's hood and windshield were "riddled with bullet holes," WJZ reported.

A Baltimore County police officer was with the agents and did not fire, according to WBAL.

The Baltimore County Police Department and the FBI would not release more information about the victim, citing the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Kim, that is what I thought in earlier comments, elsewhere. Remember, members of his family were present. FBI has not said anything about them, or whether they were in the bullet riddled vehicle and just lucky not to have been hit. There is no statement that agents were in fear for their lives before they started firing, so why did they? Is FBI becoming more like Gestapo? Judge and jury? Why is media hushing things with only one side presented?

Chuck, We all know when there is an investigation nothing is discussed until all the information is brought out. If the guy had his family in the vicinity why did he try to run and put everyone's life in jeopardy ? Like you said. too many unanswered questions.

Thank god his daughter was not in the vehicle.. There was no need for them to fire 23 rounds without being proposed a threat. This is just a plain and simple murder. Another man taken from this world way to soon. May you R.I.P and you will be missed dearly and loved by plenty of us. I hope justice is served with the 3 agents or at least a "proper" investigation. Instead of keeping everything hush hush to cover up the real truth in this matter!!

Article says "He was BACKING away, so obviously, he was going AWAY from those that shot him! Sounds like a case of extreme force, perhaps unwarranted by the situation! I feel that if you or I were to shoot at, and kill a person trying to escape in a similar manner, we would ALREADY be in JAIL, and charged with murder! WHY do we have/allow this double standard??

Notice that there has been nothing mentioned by the authorities since they released the man's name. Nor has the media followed up on the story (forsaking their duty of seeking answers). Among the questions they should have asked is, why did the agents shoot when he was not shooting at them, and in a busy street, possibly endangering other uninvolved bystanders. Fortunately, no one else was hit, but they might have been. Seems like something the Gestapo might have done in Nazi Germany.
