Suspect shot, killed after US Marshals task force attempts to serve warrant at Gaithersburg home

A suspect is dead after an officer-involved shooting stemming from a US Marshals Office Task Force attempting to serve an arrest warrant in Gaithersburg, Maryland on Wednesday.

Investigators from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office say the task force, which is made up of officers from different jurisdictions, was delivering an arrest warrant to a person located inside a house in the 100 block of Garth Terrace around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

According to investigators, the arrest warrant was related to home invasion charges against the suspect from 2020.

Police say as the task force arrived at the house, officers noticed the suspect trying to flee the home through a window. After jumping out of the window, police say, the suspect ran towards a Montgomery County Sheriff's Deputy, who was a member of the task force. Police say as the suspect charged, that deputy opened fire and hit the suspect.
