Woman Killed By Baltimore County Police Ignored Pleas From Boyfriend to Surrender

The mother of the woman killed during a standoff with Baltimore County police said her daughter ignored pleas from her boyfriend to surrender.

Rhonda Dormeus said she was on a Facebook call Monday with her daughter, Korryn Gaines, 23, as Gaines sat with her 5-year-old son on the floor of her Randallstown apartment with a shotgun in her hands.

“I could hear her boyfriend telling her it wasn’t worth it, to just come on out,” said Dormeus, 49.

“At that time the phone went dead,” she said.
