We continue remembering each of our 10 honored fallen leading up to our Baltimore County Memorial Service on May 10, 2019.
Today we pause to remember Officer First Class Amy Caprio. On May 21, 2018, Officer Caprio was the primary officer responding to a call for a suspicious vehicle with multiple suspicious subjects walking around homes in the unit block of Linwen Way in Nottingham, Precinct 8/Parkville. Officer Caprio arrived in the area and located a black Jeep Wrangler, following it to the cul-de-sac at the end of Linwen Way. She exited her vehicle and ordered the driver to exit the Jeep. As the driver began to exit the Jeep, he got back in and quickly accelerated, driving toward and striking Officer Caprio. She suffered traumatic injuries and was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced deceased. Four suspects were later arrested in connection with the incident that killed Officer Caprio. On May 1, 2019, the first of the four suspects was convicted by a Baltimore County Jury of First Degree Murder.
Officer Caprio served the citizens of Baltimore County from July 1, 2014 until May 21, 2019.
