LAUREL, Md. – A city official says a Laurel, Maryland, police officer responding to a burglary alarm in a store shot a man inside.
City spokeswoman Audrey Barnes says officers called to the Indus Food International Market after 11 p.m. Sunday caught a 15-year-old boy fleeing the building.
Barnes says officers found a 20-year-old man inside, where an officer shot him. She did not know what prompted the shooting and says officials aren’t saying whether a weapon was found.
Barnes says the wounded man is in stable condition after surgery and the teen was released to a parent.
She says officials aren’t saying whether the officer involved was wearing a body camera. She says the 17-year veteran is on routine administrative leave. She did not know the races of the people involved.
