Police Had Previous Encounters With Man Shot By Officers

Wednesday, November 09, 2011 – Steve Fermier
Police in Howard County apparently had at least one previous run-in with a man officers shot on Monday afternoon in Hanover.

19 year old Jeffrey Nichols of Elkridge confronted officers at his home in early October when police said he flashed a knife at them and said “just do it…make it quick.”

A similar incident was reported in September.

In October, officers arrested him and took him to a hospital for evaluation.

Police now say Nichols was shot 8 times Monday when he refused to drop a handgun near an industrial park.

He is in critical condition at Shock Trauma.
