BROOKLYN PARK, Md. (WJZ) -- A woman is dead and a suspect is in custody following an incident in Brooklyn Park Tuesday afternoon, the Anne Arundel County Police Department said.

A police officer fired a single round that did not hit anyone, officials said. The suspect continued driving toward Baltimore, at which point a woman inside the truck either was pushed or jumped out.

"At that time he put his tow truck in reverse, then put it in drive, driving toward one of our detectives," Anne Arundel County Police Sergeant Jackie Davis said.

The truck ran the woman her over, killing her, police said.

"Unfortunately, the tow truck actually ran her over and killed her on scene," Sergeant Davis said.

Officers arrested the suspect a short time later in Baltimore City.

The investigation remains ongoing, police said.
