NORTH EAST — A Maryland State Police trooper shot and killed a wanted man who allegedly resisted arrest in the Walmart parking lot at the Northeast Plaza on Friday night, police reported.
The deceased man was identified by police as Charles S. Hall, 30, of North East.
MSP spokesman Greg Shipley identified the officer who fired the fatal shot as Trooper Daryl K. Brackett, a three-year veteran of the force who is assigned to the North East Barrack, located next to Northeast Plaza.
The incident unfolded just before 9 p.m. when Brackett was heading to a call at the Advanced Auto Parts store in Northeast Plaza, said Shipley, who did not disclose the nature of that call.
As Brackett drove past the Walmart, he recognized Hall and knew that he was wanted by the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office for theft, Shipley said. Brackett stopped his car and attempted to arrest Hall, but the wanted man allegedly resisted arrest and began fighting with the trooper, Shipley said. At some point during the altercation, Hall got into his vehicle and began to accelerate.
“During the struggle, the trooper fired his assigned duty pistol, striking Hall in the upper torso,” Shipley said.
