Maryland deputies fatally shoot man who stabbed his parents
Maryland sheriff’s deputies fatally shot a man early Tuesday after officials said the man stabbed his parents, killing his father.
Frederick County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a stabbing at a Frederick home just after 2 a.m., officials said in a news release.
A 911 caller reported his brother stabbing their parents, Sheriff Chuck Jenkins said at a news conference. Deputies found a woman stabbed at home and a man was found on the street, Jenkins said.
When three more deputies arrived, they encountered a gunman and fired their weapons, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. The man, believed to be the son of the two stabbed people, died at the scene, officials said.

The father died in a hospital and the mother was airlifted to Shock Trauma, but her injuries were ruled superficial, Jenkins said.
The shooting will be investigated by the independent investigative division of the attorney general’s office, division spokesman Thomas Lester said. A knife was recovered from the scene and part of the incident was captured by a body-worn camera, he said.
