Officers tried to serve an attempted murder warrant

Two Baltimore law enforcement officials were injured in a shootout that left a suspect dead.

The U.S. Marshals Service said the officers were members of a fugitive task force who were attempting to serve a warrant on an attempted murder suspect.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s office said the two injured officers are a Baltimore city and Baltimore County police officer. The suspect was identified as a former Maryland corrections official who was under investigation, according to Hogan.

One officer was injured in the leg and the other in the stomach, U.S. Marshals Service spokesman David Lutz told The Associated Press. Both officers were taken to a shock trauma center at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.

Lutz said the officers were working to serve a warrant on an attempted murder suspect.

The Baltimore Sun and other local media outlets reported large police presences at Cedonia and Radecke avenues.

The Baltimore Office of Emergency Management was advising people to avoid the area.
