Weapons seized from Maryland man after officers fired on

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — A Maryland man has been arrested and weapons and ammunition were seized from his home after authorities say he fired nearly two dozen shots at law enforcement officers.

The Herald-Mail report the incident began late Friday after police received a 911 call during which a female reported being threatened by a male at a home in Hagerstown.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says when deputies tried to engage with the suspect, he fired at them through a window at close range.

The suspect now faces charges including first-degree attempted murder.
