Suspect dead after police-involved shooting in White Marsh

One person was shot in a police-involved shooting in White Marsh early Tuesday morning after officers tried to stop a stolen car.

Police have confirmed the suspect, 19-year-old Briatay McDuffie of the 4200 block of Sheldon Avenue, has died.

Around 12:30 a.m. Baltimore County Police spotted a vehicle they deemed suspicions and tried to make a traffic stop. The vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Corolla, turned out to be stolen, police said.

Police followed the car into the area around Apperson and Smiloff Roads. 

According to investigators, McDuffie, who was driving, turned down Madge Court and had turned around when an officer turned into the court. 

Police say that is when McDuffie rammed the police car and one of the men in the car got out and ran away. The two other people got out of the car a short time later. 

"After an extensive search, we were able to locate all three persons, two of them were taken into custody," Corporal John Wachter said.   

Michael Ayd woke up to police sirens. He said during the chase, McDuffie also rammed his car. 

"It was a little scary. We didn't know what was going on at first but then when they told us it was suspects that were at large in the neighborhood running around little nervous," Ayd said. 

Police tell ABC2 an officer found McDuffie deep in a wooded area. They say it was during an encounter that the officer shot McDuffie. McDuffie was declared dead at the scene. 
"The officer that was involved in the shooting did receive some minor injuries that did not require hospitalization. And that officer is going to be on administrative status while the incident is reviewed," Corporal Wachter said. 
The Corolla was reported stolen in Baltimore City on Monday.
