A Baltimore County police officer was shot and killed this morning serving a warrant at a home in Catonsville.
Police officials have identified the officer who died as 36-year-old Jason Schneider. He was shot in an exchange of gunfire at the home on Roberts Avenue and was later pronounced dead at University of Maryland Medical Center's Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
A police spokeswoman says Schneider was in the home serving a warrant related to a previous shooting, when a man displayed a weapon and there was an exchange of gunfire. That man, not the man sought in the arrest warrant, is being treated at Shock Trauma.
Schneider was a 13-year veteran of the force, had been a member of the department's tactical unit. The unit's duties include serving high-risk warrants.
