BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — Baltimore County Police today released the 911 calls surrounding the Hunt Valley attack this weekend that wounded five people.

One of the calls came from inside the liquor store, in a back room where the caller tells dispatch she has two wounded men.

But the calls kept coming.

The next batch from the Noodles and Company as suspect Jamaal Taylor began indiscriminately attacking people on the avenue.

"We are at Hunt Valley in Noodles and Company,” a caller told 911. “And some dude just came by and stabbed my friend."

Baltimore County Police said they tried to de-escalate the situation, but that Taylor left them no choice.

He was shot and killed by Officers Wise and Brocato; Brocato, the more experienced of the two with 13 years on the job.

WMAR 2-News has also confirmed on Tuesday that Brocato was involved in another police shooting back in 2010 at a Food Lion in Randallstown.

Police then said Brocato was attacked by a suspect who went for his gun.

The suspect, Henry Harris was shot twice in the confrontation.

He would later file a civil rights case in federal court claiming Brocato and the other officer used excessive force.

It was ultimately dismissed...the case closed in 2011.

Brocato and Wise have since been placed on routine administrative leave for this weekend's shooting while it continues to be investigated.

All the victims in the case are expected to make a full recovery.
