FBI involvement cited in fatal shooting

One person was killed Friday afternoon in Baltimore County in what an FBI spokeswoman called an “agent involved shooting.”

County police said the fatal shooting occurred about 4:40 p.m. in the 9700 block of Reisterstown Road, near a commercial area in the northwestern part of the county.

Details about the incident were scanty.

“We’re only confirming an Agent involved shooting, but nothing further because it’s an ongoing investigation,” FBI spokeswoman Amy J. Thoreson wrote in an e-mail.

State will not enforce $10,000 donor limit

Maryland will no longer enforce its law limiting donors to giving $10,000 to state candidates during a single election cycle, elections officials said Friday, citing a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last week.

A memo by the State Board of Elections said contributions to individual candidates are still limited to $4,000. But in light of the court’s ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, the overall limit for a four-year cycle is no longer enforceable.

Maryland has had one of the nation’s lowest overall caps, officials said.The new guidance takes effect immediately.

It was by far the hottest day of the year Friday in Washington.
