The suspect displayed a handgun and threatened bank tellers before fleeing with an undetermined amount of cash.

Responding units saturated the area and located the suspect operating a vehicle on Route 32 near Burns Crossing Road, Gambrills, Maryland. Officers exited their patrol vehicles and began giving verbal commands to the suspect who was stopped. The suspect initially complied with officers but then accelerated forward in the direction of several officers. At that point officers were in fear of their lives and shot at the suspect. The suspect continued and struck a police vehicle which in turn caused a police sergeant to be struck by a vehicle.

The suspect’s vehicle came to a rest at which time he was taken into custody. Evidence linking the suspect to the bank robbery was located within the passenger compartment of the vehicle. The suspect was not struck by gunfire but was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for treatment of minor scrapes. The police sergeant was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Two other officers suffered minor injuries related to this incident and they were treated and released at a local hospital.

Route 32 eastbound was closed for several hours while detectives processed the crime scene. Once officers observed the inside of the suspect vehicle they saw money and also a handgun. That handgun was determined to be a realistic looking BB gun.

The suspect was identified as Lamar Dontreze Mills,28, of the 300 block of Goldsborough Street, Easton, Maryland. He has been charged with multiple counts of Attempted First and Second Degree Murder, Armed Robbery, and several related charges.

This remains an active investigation.
