ROCKVILLE, Md. — Authorities say one person was killed and three men were arrested when police responded to a burglary-in-progress at a Maryland gun store.
Montgomery County police also said in a news release Friday that one officer is on administrative leave pending review.
Police say an officer responded to the burglary call at United Gun Store in Rockville about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. As he left his vehicle to approach a sports utility vehicle parked in front of the store, the SUV accelerated and struck his cruiser.
The officer fired his gun during the confrontation.
When the SUV became disabled, four suspects fled on foot. Police said 17-year-old Marquis Weems of Anne Arundel County died at the scene.
Two juveniles and a 21-year-old man were arrested.
Authorities recovered 17 guns with 10 stolen firearms still missing.
