ELKTON, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police say a Cecil County Sheriff's deputy fatally shot a man who drove toward the deputy.
Sgt. Marc Black, a state police spokesman, said in an email that the deputy, whom he did not identify, tried to conduct a traffic stop on an SUV about 12:20 p.m. Wednesday in Elkton.
Black says the vehicle did not stop and eventually turned around and accelerated toward the deputy. Black says the deputy fired his department-issued .40 caliber Glock pistol several times at the SUV.
Black says the vehicle traveled into a backyard and hit a tree.
