3 Dead in Murder Suicide in Glen Burnie, Shooter Was Baltimore City Police Officer

Updated: Sunday, October 27 2013, 04:47 PM EDT
A Baltimore City Police Officer and firefighter are among the three dead in a murder suicide in Glen Burnie.

Police say 27-year-old Andrew Hoffman, 26-year-old Marie Hartman and 37-year-old Christopher Robinson were found dead in a home in the 1100 block of Armistead Street at around 1:30 a.m. Hoffman was a Baltimore City firefighter and Robinson was a member of the Baltimore City Police Department.

Investigators say the suspect, Robinson, had a relationship with Hartman and the incident appears to be domestic related.

Fire Chief Jeffrey Segal issued a statement regarding Hoffman's death saying, "Our hearts are saddened with news of the tragic death of FF/PM Andrew Hoffman. A third-generation member of the Fire Department, Andrew had served the city of Baltimore since 2006. We offer sincere condolences to the Hoffman family as they grieve this terrible loss. They are in the thoughts of every member of the Baltimore City Fire Department today."

Hoffman was praised by the Anne Arundel County Police Department in July for helping a lost 3-year-old find his way home.Hoffman found the boy walking along West Maple Road in Linthicum at 4 a.m. and called police. The boy was reunited with his parents shortly after.

The Baltimore Police Department responded to the incident saying, "The Baltimore Police Department extends its deepest sympathies to the family, loved ones, and friends of those who died in this terrible incident.   Any loss of any life is devastating.  Those left behind have suffered an immeasurable loss and will be in the collective thoughts and prayers of the members of the Baltimore Police Department.  While the criminal investigation is conducted by the Anne Arundel County Police Department, this agency has begun an immediate review to see if there is more that can be done to help those returning to civilian life from military deployments.   While at present there are no indications that a military deployment was the cause of this incident, this Department recognizes the tremendous sacrifice made by the men and women who serve in the military.   The BPD is committed to ensuring that those men and women are given all the assistance they require when they return home.   For now, the prayers of both the Fire Department and Police Department will be with the families impacted by this tragedy."

A motive has not been established, but police say the investigation is ongoing.

Both Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts and Anne Arundel County Police Chief Kevin Davis responded to the scene.
