2 Maryland Deputies Wounded in Connected Shootings

February 10, 2016  | 

Two Harford County (MD) Sheriff's deputies were wounded in two separate confrontations with a gunman this morning. Their names and conditions are not known at this time, however, one was airlifted to a shock trauma center.

Sheriff Jeff Gahler said at a press conference deputies were called to a Panera Bread at a busy shopping area in Abingdon at about 11:46 a.m. for reasons that he would not divulge. After entering the restaurant, the deputy was fired on by a gunman and hit.

An additional deputy or deputies followed the gunman to a nearby apartment building. At that location, another deputy was shot and the gunman was killed.

Gahler speculated that the two shootings occurred not more than 15 minutes apart and called the second shooting a "continuation of events" from the Panera attack.

The sheriff said authorities are not searching for any additional suspects.

Gahler thanked other area public safety and law enforcement agencies for their swift and "overwhelming support."
