Will this death go down as the first “Red Flag” death? This does not bode well for the police. They are now the designated arbiter to do the collection of weapons? I would suggest that going to a house in Baltimore at 5:17 am is not the best time to collect a weapon. One might find someone with a handgun at the ready.
FERNADALE, Md. (WJZ) — A 61-year-old man is dead after he was shot by an officer trying to enforce Maryland’s new ‘red flag’ law in Ferndale Monday morning.
Anne Arundel County Police confirmed the police-involved shooting happened in the 100 block of Linwood Avenue around 5:17 a.m.
According to police, two officers serving a new Extreme Risk Protective Order (Red Flag Law), a Maryland protective order to remove guns from a household, shot and killed the man listed on that order.
“Under the law, family, police, mental health professionals can all ask for the protective orders to remove weapons,” said Sgt. Jacklyn David, with Anne Arundel County Police.
Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
