WOODLAWN, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore County Police have charged a man in a burglary that led to the fatal shooting of another suspect.

Police say officers shot and killed a suspect after an officer was dragged by a minivan on Tuesday. On Wednesday, officers identified the dead man as 23-year-old Allen Harvey Jr. of Baltimore.

Police have charged Harvey's uncle, 54-year-old Leon Harvey of Baltimore, with burglary and other offenses. Officers say they apprehended Leon Harvey after he fled the scene of the burglary.

A third suspect, who was a passenger in the minivan, was shot and remains hospitalized at Shock Trauma.

The officers involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative duty.
