Deputy Shot Man During Traffic Stop

At approximately 7 p.m. Wednesday night, January 10, a 25 year old man from Calvert County was shot by a Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Deputy during a traffic stop.

“The suspect was shot one time during the traffic stop on Rt. 4 just south of the intersection with H.G. Truman Road in St. Leonard,” Lt. Col Tom Hejl told The Bay Net.

The man was flown from the scene to PG Trauma Unit, and is not suffering from life-threatening injuries, according to Hejl.

Hejl could not say why the traffic stop was conducted; only that it was a traffic related offense that caused the officer to stop the 25 year old driver.

Hejl also could not say whether the officer had been shot at during the exchange or the exact number of shots that were fired. The driver, who Hejl refered to as the “suspect,” was shot once.

The name of the officer involved in the shooting and the name of the 25 year old county man who was shot are not being released. “There names are not being released because the investigation is being conducted and we are waiting for charging documents and review by the State’s Attorney,” Hejl explained.

The Bay Net will bring you further details as they become available.
