The Maryland state flag is being flown at half mast in honor of Officer Adrian Morris, who died Monday.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has ordered the state flag be flown at half staff to honor a Prince George's County police officer killed in the line of duty yesterday. The officer was in a crash while pursuing a vehicle that matched the description of a car involved in a theft.

Police say they've arrested an occupant of the car the officers were chasing yesterday afternoon on I-95 near the Powder Mill Road Exit. The vehicle matched the description of a car involved in a theft.

One of the officers lost control of the vehicle while in pursuit, and the cruiser ran off the highway into a ditch. The officer who was killed was 23-year-old Adrian Morris, a native of Kingston, Jamaica, who had been on the force for two and a half years. The other officer suffered injuries that were not life threatening.

Police have not provide any additional details on the arrest. The car involved in the pursuit was recovered early this morning.
