Maryland deputy critical after shootout that left gunman dead

Dfc. Warren Scott Hogan was in critical condition on Thursday.


A Maryland sheriff’s deputy was in critical condition but out of surgery Thursday morning after an early morning shootout that left a gunman dead, officials said.


Dfc. Warren Scott Hogan, a four-year veteran, was assisting a woman who has been previously involved in a domestic disturbance back to her house to collect clothes when a man, grabbed a gun and shot at Hogan, the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

Hogan shot back, hitting the man, who was pronounced dead just after 8:30 pm in the Chester River Medical Center in Chestertown.

The shooter’s name was not immediately released.

Hogan was flown to Shock Trauma where he underwent a surgery for unspecified injuries.

Maryland State Police are investigating the incident and a press conference is scheduled later Thursday morning.
