Officer Fired Round That Hit Child During Standoff

Officer Fired Round That Hit Child During Standoff”

The Baltimore County police department confirmed late Friday afternoon that one of their officers had shot the five-year-old child of the woman they killed after a standoff in her apartment, but would not release the name of the shooting officer.

Baltimore County police officers shot and killed 23-year-old Korryn Gaines after she barricaded herself inside her Randallstown apartment on Monday (Tuesday NZT) with the boy and pointed a shotgun at officers attempting to serve an arrest warrant. Police served him with a warrant for allegedly assaulting Gaines, and he has since been arrested for drugs that were found in the apartment, according to court documents.

Kodi was wounded in the arm and left cheek during the exchange of gunfire, according to police. According to online court records, he faces a preliminary hearing on September 2. Her son, Kodi Gaines, was also shot. She said Courtney tried to persuade Gaines to turn herself in, but Gaines refused and remained in the apartment during a almost six-hour standoff with a tactical Swat-style team.

Until Friday it had not been clear whether Korryn Gaines or police had fired the shot that hit the boy, which was originally said to have hit him in a limb.

It is not immediately clear where Kodi was in relation to his mother during the shooting.

Chief James Johnson made the decision after the department received "threats and actions against specific officers and officials", officials said.

Police have not yet identified the officer who fired the rounds that killed Gaines.
