Suspect Killed In Officer-Involved Shooting In Hunt Valley Identified

HUNT VALLEY, Md. (WJZ) - Baltimore County Police have identified the suspect in the Hunt Valley Towne Center stabbing incident as 31 year old Jamaal Ramone Taylor of the 6000 block of Amberwood Road.

Police say three people were stabbed at Hunt Valley, Wine Liquor and Beer during an altercation with Taylor.


Two people were also stabbed at neighboring businesses. All five victims suffered non-life-threatening wounds and were transported to local hospitals for treatment.

"The suspect was first threatening people, then had a knife, then was stabbing people and fleeing from the location," said Jennifer Peach, Baltimore County Police spokesperson.

Police say Taylor fled from the shopping mall and then was shot and killed at the intersection of Shawan Road and McCormick Road after he refused to comply with officers demands to drop the knife he was holding.

"He was armed with a knife and our officers were forced to discharge their weapons, that resulted in a critical injury to the suspect," Peach said.

Detectives are now working to obtain surveillance video to piece together a timeline of Taylor's actions on Saturday.

Baltimore County Police are also working with Maryland Transit Administration Police to investigate a separate incident that they say involved the same suspect.

Baltimore County Police Homicide detectives are also asking anyone who witnessed any of the incidents yesterday, including drivers or pedestrians who witnessed the officer-involved shooting, to call police at (410) 307-2020.
