murder-suicideUPDATE:  Statement from Anne Arundel County Chief of Police, Kevin Davis:

“I was saddened to hear about the tragic events that unfolded this morning in Glen Burnie. This situation became even more personal when we learned that one of the victims, Andrew “Andy” Hoffman was a hero we saluted, not for his work as a fireman/paramedic, but for his humanism. He is the man that found little “Paulie” Marshall a few months ago. As you may remember, three-year old Paulie walked out of
his home in the middle of the night. Mr. Hoffman was the kind citizen that stopped and helped reunite Paulie with his family.”

“On behalf of the men and women of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, we offer our heartfelt condolences to the Hoffman family. Their loved one’s recent act of kindness averted a tragedy, and our
entire community owes him a debt of gratitude. Our thoughts are also with the Hartman and Robinson families for the senseless loss of their loved ones.”
