PITTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Maryland say a 20-year-old man was arrested and charged in the fatal shooting of a sheriff’s deputy who was trying to arrest him on multiple felony warrants.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Monday that Deputy First Class Glenn Hilliard and another deputy went to an apartment complex in Pittsville on Sunday to arrest Austin Davidson. They didn’t find him initially, but when Hilliard returned a short time later, he spotted a man who matched the description of Davidson, who took off as Hilliard approached. Hilliard chased the man who then fired multiple shots, striking Hilliard at least once.

Sheriff Lewis says Hilliard succumbed to his injuries.
