Baltimore County police are investigating a deadly shooting in Perry Hall.
Police responded at about 5:45 a.m. Sunday to a home in the 4200 block of Chapel Road.
Preliminary information from police is that a suspected burglar had somehow entered the home and was confronted by a resident.
Police said the suspect was armed with a gun. They also said the resident shot the suspect in the chest.
The suspect was taken to Franklin Square Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police are questioning the resident, but they haven't released the name of the suspect nor the resident. Authorities were still at the scene Sunday night.
The resident is a tow-truck operator, 11 News' Kim Dacey reported Sunday night.
It's refreshing to see, what seems to be, another legitimate DGU in the news. I've been keeping an unofficial running total. This must bring the ratio down to about 1 legitimate DGU for every 110 wrongful shootings. Why do you think that is?
