An officer in Maryland who was shot during the execution of a search warrant Wednesday morning has died.

36-year-old Jason Schneider was a 13-year veteran of the agency and had a decade of experience in the tactical division.

As he was going down he returned fire striking the suspect several times.” The suspect is being treated at Shock Trauma, he is in critical condition.
