A police officer in Maryland was shot and killed while trying to protect a woman threatened in a domestic dispute.

Officials said the suspect, 37-year-old Glenn Tyndell, later took Ramzziddin's gun and led police on a chase before he was shot and killed by officers in the area of Route 210 and Old Fort Road in Fort Washington.

Sources tell WJLA that a woman called police and said her husband had shot a police officer.

A police spokeswoman declined to give details about what happened, saying a news conference would be held later Wednesday afternoon.

Ramzzidin, who was off-duty at the time, jumped into action when a neighbor came over and asked him for help. Sources told WRC that officers fatally shot the suspect as he attempted to run into the woods.
