TOWSON, Md. (AP) - Police in Baltimore County say a man is dead after he was shot by a police officer he threatened with a knife.
Police say the officer was on patrol just before 4 a.m. Sunday when he saw a suspicious man behind a gas station in the area of Edmondson Avenue and North Bend Road. Police say the officer asked the man to come out from behind bushes, but the man refused and pointed a knife at the officer.
Police say the officer tried to use a stun gun on the man and repeatedly told him to drop the knife before shooting him once.
Police say the suspect, later identified as 36-year-old Gregory Stegall, was declared dead at a hospital.
