Winfield Fisher III has been identified as the man who was shot and killed by Maryland State Police at the Salisbury barrack after he apparently struck an officer.

The 32-year old from Salisbury was hit by at least one bullet and was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Fisher showed up at the barrack so someone could check on a repair he’d made to his car.

Shortly after Corporal Anthony Meyers went outside to check he returned needing help.

The paper reports Meyers was either struck or dragged or both by Fisher’s car in the front parking lot of the barrack.

Meyers and another office Trooper Jeffrey Wilkins both fired their pistols.

Fisher was found around 150 yards north of the barrack in his car which had struck the median guardrail in the center of Route 13.
