UPDATE 10:20PM JUNE 3, 2019:
From the Anne Arundel County Police:

During numerous witness interviews it was learned that the suspect was walking/standing in the travel lanes of Route 50 in what several people said appeared to be an attempt to get struck.

The suspect in this shooting was a volunteer firefighter with Prince George’s County Fire Department. We have learned that he was part of a dive team for the department that had just been disbanded earlier in the day. From a witness who drove through the area just prior to the incident, a person presumed to be the suspect was darting in and out of the lanes of Route 50. From a witness at the scene the suspect was also heard yelling “f%$# you pig” at the officer on the scene.

We are hearing conflicting reports that the suspect who was shot by Anne Arundel County Police last night along Route 50 has died from the gunshot wound.  At this point, we are working to confirm several other details about this incident that we have received. This will be updated tomorrow. (SEE JUNE 3 10:20AM UPDATE ON VICTIM CONDITION)
