Woman Shot by Police in Pikesville

Police: The woman was shot after she didn’t follow orders to drop a handgun.

A woman is in serious condition after a Baltimore County police officer shot her when she would not drop a gun early Saturday morning in Pikesville, police said.

Just before 2 a.m. Saturday, police responded to a house in the 3100 block of Northbrook Road for a report of a suspicious person. When they arrived, an officer saw a woman standing in front of the house. When he approached her, she threw a large rock at the house, breaking a window, the release said.

The woman then pulled out a handgun and did not drop the weapon after the officer ordered her to do so several times, the release said. As the situation escalated, the officer shot the woman several times in the upper body, the release said.

The woman was taken to a local hospital and is in serious condition, the release said. Her name is not being released by police because family notification is pending and because the investigation is ongoing. The officer’s information will not be released Saturday in accordance with a police union agreement, the release said.

MD Resident, you let someone pull out a gun and refuse to drop it in your presence and see if you are counting bullets or trying to shoot the gun out of their hand. That stuff works in the movies because Clint Eastwood isn't going to die if he fails to neutralize the threat. When you are forced to shoot, you shoot to kill and you shoot towards center mass because not only is that the most effective but it also minimizes stray rounds potentially hitting other living objects. It really frightens me that it is remotely possible that if my worst nightmare ever came true on the job and I was forced to use lethal force that one or more brain dead individuals like you might have some influence on my fate.
