ELKTON, MD.  – Somewhere along the line, someone never told two bozos from Maryland and wanted in Delaware that it wasn’t a good idea to point guns at cops. They also never figured out that dealing heroin can lead to no good. Now the grim reaper is out to claim the remains of the desperados who came to a violent end in Elkton, Md.

Maryland State Police reports that two suspects who were wanted on felony warrants in Delaware and who were armed with what appeared to be handguns but were later determined to be BB guns, were fatally wounded on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, when both ignored commands of a police fugitive team and raised their guns at officers attempting to arrest them at a Cecil County motel.

Shortly before 10 a.m. today, members of the Maryland State Apprehension Team went to the New Eastern Inn, in the 200-block of Pulaski Highway, Elkton, Md.  The Maryland State Apprehension team included fugitive investigators from the Maryland State Police and the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office.

The preliminary Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigation indicates investigators determined both suspects were in a second-floor room of the motel.  Members of the MSAT team approached the hotel room door.  They were wearing ballistic vests clearly marked with “Police” and displaying police badges.

Police knocked on the hotel room door and announced their presence, saying they had a warrant and the suspects should surrender.  No answer was received and an officer saw a male inside the room pick up a handgun and move toward the door.  Police officers outside the door immediately retreated and continued to shout commands to the suspects inside.  Assistance was requested from the Elkton Police Department and officers responded to join those from the State Police and Cecil County Sheriff’s Office already there.

Without warning, the male suspect then stepped outside the room onto the walkway and pointed a handgun at police, ignoring their continuing commands to drop the weapon.  Police fired at the suspect, who was hit.

According to the preliminary investigation, several minutes passed as police continued to yell commands to the suspects in the room.  Without warning, the male suspect then stepped outside the room onto the walkway and pointed a handgun at police, ignoring their continuing commands to drop the weapon.  Police fired at the suspect, who was hit.

Seconds later, the female stepped outside the room and also pointed a handgun at officers, ignoring their continuing commands to drop the weapon.  Police fired at the suspect and she was hit.

Police called for emergency medical assistance.  Both suspects were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit is conducting the investigation, as is procedure in police involved shootings.  Investigators are working to determine how many police officers fired and what departments they are from.  Investigators have determined one of the officers who fired is a trooper from the Maryland State Police.  He has been placed on administrative leave, as is procedure pending the outcome of the investigation.

State Police investigators obtained a search warrant prior to a search of the scene.  Crime scene technicians and investigators are continuing to process the scene this afternoon.

Investigators have found two replica handguns next to the suspects.  At this time, it is believed one is a BB pistol and the other is a compressed air-powered pellet or BB gun.  Further examination will be conducted as the scene is processed.  A photo of one of the guns accompanies this news release.

The investigation is continuing.  Upon completion, the State Police Homicide Unit investigation will be provided to the Cecil County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.

The Maryland State Police Internal Affairs Unit is also conducting an investigation, as is standard procedure.  This investigation examines adherence to administrative policies and procedures.
