Baltimore County police said an officer shot a man following a home invasion Monday morning in Dundalk.

According to a news release from the police department, a woman awoke around 10 a.m. to find a masked, armed man in her home on the 3200 block of Wallford Ave.

Police said the woman left her house and called 911.

Officers responded to a call of an armed robbery in progress. 

One of the officers found a man armed with a semi-automatic handgun on the back porch.  The officer repeatedly ordered the man to drop the weapon, but he refused to comply and turned towards the officer. 

The officer then fired his service weapon, striking the man several times. 

The suspect, a 27 year-old man, has been treated and released from the hospital. 

The suspect robbed the victims of an undisclosed amount of money.  It is not  known if there is any connection between the suspect and the victims. 

"I was in my living room cleaning when, I heard the cops speed down the road," said Christina Zeberlein a neighbor. “Then I heard about six shots.”

The man was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment, where his condition is unknown, according to the release.

The officer has been placed on routine administrative leave pending the results of an internal review of the incident.

Bart, I know that I lost an edge. I deal with it every day. The medication I must use takes a toll on one's cognitive ability and you don't have a choice, you have to take it. You can't go down and expect every thing to be the same afterward. That is not the first time I overreacted without taking the time to slow down and try and offset some of these issue. You cannot feel more foolish than I just did, but that sadly for me the way it is. I continue to make these blunders. There is some solace that stain medication is the leading cause of the misdiagnoses of memory and cognitive issues in the country. I think you have said you have some sons so I hope you and your family have a nice Christmas and New Year.

We all need to step back every once in a while. Yes, I've got some sons and the whole family is getting together for the Ravens game and Christmas Festivities. I can smell the chestnuts on the fire now. Merry Christmas to you, too. Statins, huh? Something to consider. Thanks.

Bart, read this article by Dr. Duane Graveland, from NASA. He was a victim of the side affects of these medications. Other current studies are being done at JHU. http://www.spacedoc.com/lipitor_thief_of_memory.html Other dangerous drugs that are used used to calm elderly patients with Dementia causes memory issues that can be almost as impairing as the disease. One of the widely used and effective ones is Alprazolam. The common name is Xanax. This is an anti-anxiety medication that according to the Geriatrician doctor that treats my parent can cause severe memory loos issues. Beta blockers are another issue. http://www.raysahelian.com/betablocker.html One of the main reasons some of this research is slow in reaching the public is the financial impact on the drug companies. It was not until others who were impacted by these medications and began to speak out did researchers begin to publish articles on these issues. As recent study by the University of California, San Diego, they said the leading cause of the misdiagnoses of Alzheimer's and dementia is statins.
