BALTIMORE — Anne Arunndel County Police are frantically searching for a teen accused of shooting out an officer's patrol car window.

It happened Monday morning around Hilltop Road and Blue Ridge Drive.

Police received a call from a woman who'd just come across a teen in the woods armed with a handgun.

The boy apparently told the woman he was using the gun to shoot small critters.

An officer heading to the scene was stopped at an intersection when they heard a pop and noticed their back window shattered.

The alleged gunman is believed to be 14-15 years-old wearing a camouflage jacket. Investigators believe they know the suspect and are working on leads to find him.

It's unknown if he intentionally shot at the police car.

After temporarily sheltering in place, Broadneck High School and Cape St. Claire Elementary will be dismissing at regular time with increased police presence. After school activities will also go on as normal.
