So, yeah, this is going down in my area:
A Howard County police officer was shot and seriously wounded Wednesday afternoon in Laurel after exchanging gunfire with a suspect who remains at large, authorities said.
…shortly followed by the concentration of pretty much every cop within the area to this location. They still haven’t found the shooter, so it’s going to be an interesting night for suburban Maryland law enforcement.
I don’t particularly expect any personal trouble out of this, but I am curious to see how the schools handle the situation if the guy isn’t caught by tomorrow. They were closing down roads and stuff this afternoon; it’s pretty intense.
PS: My prayers for the victim and his family/loved ones, of course.
