Police slaying of 2 linked to probe in Delaware
The Latest on two people shot to death by police as officers were serving warrants at a motel room, according to authorities, Associated Press reported.
Delaware State Police say the fatal shooting of a man and woman at a Maryland motel is connected to an investigation in neighboring Delaware.
Cpl. Jeffrey Hale says his agency had asked Maryland State Police to help find a couple wanted on Delaware drug and firearm charges stemming from an incident last week in Dover.
Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley says officers were serving those warrants Tuesday morning in Elkton, Maryland, when the confrontation occurred.
Shipley says officers shot a man who came out of the motel room, raised a gun at officers and refused to drop it.
He says the woman was shot after doing the same thing a few seconds later.
