May 21 (UPI) -- A Baltimore County police officer died Monday after being shot while responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said.
The officer, whose name hasn't been released, was shot around 2 p.m. in the Perry Hall area.
"The suspect who committed this terrible crime remains at large, and [Maryland State Police] are assisting Baltimore County Police in their search," Hogan said. "The state stands ready to provide any and all resources necessary to capture this individual and bring them to justice."
Baltimore County police said they are seeking at least one armed suspect. Police ordered residents in the area to shelter in place. Officials at nearby schools also held classes over the usual dismissal time to keep children safe.
