Lansdowne man shot by deputies dies

A Lansdowne man shot yesterday afternoon by a Baltimore County sheriff's deputy attempting to serve a warrant on him has died, a county police spokesman said.

Bill Toohey, the spokesman, said that when four deputies arrived at the home of Wayne K. Hicks, 55, in the 2200 block of Gaylawn Drive about 2:30 p.m. to serve the failure-to-appear warrant and take him into custody, Hicks appeared at the front door armed with a handgun. Toohey said he did not know the nature of the civil case for which Hicks failed to appear.

Hicks pointed the weapon at the deputies, one of whom drew his service weapon and shot Hicks at least once in the stomach, Toohey said.

Hicks was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he died, Toohey said. The deputy's name was not released.
