    MD - Baltimore police open probe into new shooting of unarmed black man

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Police have opened an investigation into the killing of an unarmed black man by law enforcement officers outside Baltimore, authorities said on Saturday, two months after the city was rocked by protests over the death of another African-American who was taken into custody.

    The latest incident unfolded in the Baltimore suburb of Owing Mills, where three officers fired at least 19 rounds and killed Spencer Lee McCain, 41, during a domestic disturbance on Thursday. The Baltimore County police's homicide unit is investigating, police said in a statement Saturday.

    Police will conduct an internal review to determine compliance with departmental policy, rules and regulations, the department said. It will send the findings to the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.

    The investigation comes at time when U.S. law enforcement is under close scrutiny over the use of lethal force, especially in confrontations with African-American men.

    Important to note that this is NOT the Baltimore City PD. The department is the Baltimore County Police Department.

    The police had been called there 17 times before, there was a protection order against the man and he was not supposed to be in the house. He told the woman she was going to get the beating of her life and she could be heard screaming when the police arrived. Her 10 yr old daughter called her grandmother who, in turn, called 911 to report the assault. On that note, I am glad that the mother and her children are safe and do not have to live in fear anymore.
