32-year-old thug Edel Moreland wanted to rob someone in the Baltimore suburb of Linthicum Heights, where getting a concealed carry permit is all but impossible. He figured it would be like taking candy from a baby, even though his gun was fake
He could have not done a worse job of target selection, picking an off-duty special operations unit officer just coming off his shift. The results were predictable.
An off-duty Baltimore cop shot and killed an armed robbery suspect who police say tried to rob the officer with what turned out to be a toy gun.
The shooting Saturday at 1:30 a.m. on a block of homes decorated with Christmas lights in the Baltimore suburb of Linthicum Heights was being investigated by Anne Arundel County Police, Fox 45 reported. Police said, according to the the station, that the officer fired in self-defense. They identified the robbery suspect as 32-year-old Edel Moreland.
“We feel very bad for the Moreland family to deal with the loss of a son especially around the holidays,” Anne Arundel Police Lt. Ryan Frashure told the station. “I’m sorry, our condolences to the family. Our condolences to the Baltimore city officer. It’s a very unfortunate incident to be placed into.”
The officer, who was not identified, is an 18-year veteran of the department assigned to the special operations unit.
