Maryland Deputy Critical After Shooting

Maryland Deputy Critical After Shooting

A Maryland sheriff’s deputy was in critical condition after an early morning shootout that left a gunman dead.

Queen Anne’s County Deputy Warren Scott Hogan, a four-year veteran, was escorting a female previously involved in a domestic disturbance from the sheriff’s department’s headquarters back to her house in order to gather clothing. That’s when a man inside the home grabbed a shotgun and fired at Hogan.

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

The gunman’s name was not immediately released.

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

Maryland State Police were investigating the incident.

    PLS GUYS STOP GOING INTO UNKNOWN SITUATIONS FACE FIRST. THESE DOMESTIC CONFLICTS ARE LOADED WITH DANGER. THIS DIDN’T NEED TO HAPPEN. YOU HAVE TO THINK THAT THERE MIGHT BE SOMEONE IN THE HOUSE WITH A GUN. IT IS A WAR OUT THERE. PLS GET SOME RETURNING MILITARY TO HELP WITH STRATEGIES. IT’S A WAR OUT THERE. 2016 LOST TOO MANY GOOD OFFICERS. NEVER SEND AN OFFICER INTO A SITUATION ALONE. IT WASN’T WORTH THIS GOOD OFFICER GETTING HURT FOR A BUNCH OF KMART CLOTHES. LEARN FROM THIS AND DON’T DO THIS AGAIN. YOU GET NO THANKS FOR HELPING DOMESTIC ABUSE PEOPLE, LET THEM KILL EACH OTHER AND THEIR KIDS. THEY CHOSE THE SITUATION, WE ALL HAVE TO LIVE WITH WHAT WE CHOOSE AS A LIFESTYLE., BUT GOING FACE FIRST UP A FLIGHT OF STAIRS INTO AN KNOWN DOMESTIC SITUATION CAN GET YOU KILLED. BACKUP SHOULD HAVE SORTED THE PLACE OUT WHILE THE LADY WAS TAKEN AWAY. GOD BLESS YOU OFFICER FOR TRYING TO HELP THE “UNHELPABLES” COINED A NEW WORD.WE NEED YOU GUYS, WE DON’T NEED THEM.

        I have to agree with you. This person needs to quit drinking the Kool Aid.
