REISTERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - Police in Maryland say an officer fatally shot a man who presented a forged prescription and was later involved in a confrontation with the officer.
The Baltimore County Police department said in a news release that when police first responded to a call about the alleged forgery from the Nature Care pharmacy in Reisterstown on Wednesday afternoon, they saw the suspect in the pharmacy's parking lot.
According to the release, the man ran away and an officer pursued him on foot. Investigators say a confrontation occurred between the two, and several shots were fired. The officer was not hurt. Investigators say a weapon has not been recovered, but a search of the scene had not been completed late Wednesday.
The suspect has not been identified.
