With all the attention to the ouster of Occupy Baltimore, we've been a bit behind in updating some crime. So here is a wrapup of some of the lastest:
No criminal charges will be filed against the Howard County police officers who shot and killed an Elkridge teen in November, county prosecutors said Tuesday. Prosecutors decided that "the actions of the officers in using deadly force were justified," Howard State's Attorney Dario J. Broccolino said in memo sent to police. If only Baltimore prosecutors would publicly defend their decisions in such a manner.
A school security officer used pepper spray to break up a fight between two students at an Essex high school, causing the school to be evacuated and sending 16 students to the hospital Tuesday morning, officials said. About 11:30 a.m., two students started a fight in the front lobby of Chesapeake High School, in the 1800 block of Turkey Point Road, according to a statement from Baltimore County police.
A 47-year-old man has been charged in connection with the Monday morning robbery of a PNC Bank at Towson University, as well as another bank robbery last month, Baltimore County police said. Larry McKnight of the 3400 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway is charged with one count of robbery for the incident on the Towson campus shortly after 10:30 a.m. Monday.
