A 16-year-old has been charged with second-degree murder and other offenses after Baltimore County police say he rammed a police car after being stopped in a stolen minivan.
Investigators say that Antonio Green, of Baltimore, was arrested after a struggle with police. The arrest followed a chase, on which Green led police first in the stolen white Dodge Caravan and then on foot after he crashed into a parked car. Green was eventually tracked to a shed in the backyard of a house located in the 6900 block of Sherwood Road in Baltimore.
The initial stop was made at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, when an officer noticed the minivan traveling without headlights. After pulling the vehicle over, police say Green suddenly reversed and slammed into the front of the police car while the officer was still inside. The officer pursued the minivan down Maxalea Road, when Green allegedly pulled into a driveway, rammed the back of the police car, and attempted to run the officer over when the latter got out of the car and attempted to arrest Green.
In the process, investigators say that the officer fired his gun several times at the oncoming van. The officer was later transported to Great Baltimore Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries and was later released. Green was not hit.
Green has also been charged with assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, vehicle theft, and fourth-degree burglary.
