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.
