Two Maryland sheriff’s deputies were fatally shot on Wednesday and a suspect killed in gunfire that started at a Baltimore-area restaurant filled with lunchtime diners, authorities said.

A deputy who responded to a disturbance report at a Panera Bread restaurant in Abingdon, about 25 miles northeast of Baltimore, was shot inside the building, said Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler.

A second deputy chased the suspected shooter outside the restaurant and was also wounded.

The two veteran deputies – one with 30 years at the sheriff’s office and the other with 16 years – died of their injuries, said Gahler in a message on the office’s Facebook page.

At least two other deputies fired rounds at the suspect, identified as David Brian Evans, a 67-year-old white man, Gahler said.

Evans had at least two outstanding warrants – including a criminal warrant from Florida for assaulting a police officer and fleeing. The other was a civil writ issued by Harford County Circuit Court.

A loaded handgun was recovered from Evans, Gahler said.

“Today is a sad day for the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, and the citizens of Harford County we are sworn to serve,” Gahler said. The identity of the deputies was not immediately available.

The other deputies who shot at Evans have been placed on administrative leave, per protocol, pending an investigation, Gahler said.

There were no additional suspects in the incident, which lasted about 15 minutes, he said.

Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump

Published

on

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
