PERRYVILLE, Md.- Maryland State Police and other law enforcement agencies are searching for a supsect wanted in connection with a report of a stolen vehicle who led people on a multi-state pursuit Friday morning.

Around 1:45 a.m., troopers from the MSP North East Barrack began pursuing a vehicle on MD 222 that was reported stolen from Charles County. According to investigators, the initial pursuit began with police in Ocean City and continued through Delaware before entering back in Cecil County. 

As the suspect entered Perryville, he began to drive down the CSX railroad tracks. Perryville police pursued the suspect down the tracks. The suspect vehicle eventually stopped and turned around before driving toward the officers, who were then on foot. At least one officer fired multiple rounds at the vehicle. It was unknown if the suspect was struck, police said.

Investigators believe the suspect bailed out of the vehicle and ran into a wooded area by the tracks. 

The suspect remains at large and may be armed. Maryland State Police, along with the Perrville Police Department, CSX police and Delaware State Police are continuing in the search effort.

Maryland State Police homicide detectives will be investigating the shooting by the Perryville police officer per request of their department.
