May 26, 2011|By Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun

A man pulled a handgun on police and barricaded himself inside a Baltimore County home Thursday morning after officers attempted to serve a warrant, police said.

County police say officers were serving a second-degree assault warrant on an unidentified man in the 7600 block of Perring Terrace in Parkville when the man ran to a bedroom and retrieved a handgun. He pointed the gun at an officer and barricaded himself inside the bedroom at about 10:30 a.m., and at some point fired a shot within the home, said police spokesman Robert McCullough.

Around 1:45 p.m., a hostage negotiation team talked him out of the bedroom, McCullough said. He was served the second-degree assault warrant and also charged with first-degree assault for pointing the weapon at officers, McCullough said.

His identity was not immediately disclosed.
