PERRY HALL, Md. (WMAR) – A community in mourning tonight after a police officer was killed in the line of duty.

It happened right outside Stefanie Kurek’s house. She says her family acted quickly and bravely.

“My oldest son is a volunteer firefighter and he sat with her and stayed with her until the police and paramedics came on scene,” said Kurek. “My husband and other son were out there as well helping the police.”
