ABINGDON, Md. (AP) — Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler says two deputies in Maryland were wounded and a suspect is dead after shootout at shopping center.

Harford County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kyle Andersen said Wednesday that the deputies were involved in a shooting at a shopping center in Abingdon, about 20 miles northeast of Baltimore. Andersen did not have information about injuries or whether the officers were shot or shot someone.

The shopping center is called the Boulevard at Box Hill. It has a mix of shops, restaurants, a grocery store and a bank.

Yellow tape blocked off two restaurants at the shopping center on Wednesday afternoon, but people were coming and going freely at other businesses.
