Suspect in Edgewood deputy-involved shooting out on bond

The Edgewood man shot by a Harford County sheriff's deputy following a domestic incident last Wednesday was released from the Maryland Shock Trauma Center and posted bond over the weekend, the Sheriff's Office reported.

Brian Matthew Ogle, 26, of the 500 block of Crownwood Court, was released on $150,000 bond at 1 a.m. Sunday, according to Edward Hopkins, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

He had been released from shock trauma at about 5 p.m. Saturday.

In the Wednesday incident, Ogle allegedly assaulted a woman, whom police identified as his girlfriend, in their home.

He was shot by police after running away and, when confronted by a deputy, refusing to drop a "large machete-type knife," according to the Sheriff's Office

Deputies and paramedics had originally responded to a midnight call for an overdose at the Crownwood Court address.

When they arrived, the woman inside the home told police Ogle pushed her down a flight of stairs.

Deputies chased Ogle into the woods near Route 24, where he allegedly refused repeated orders to drop the knife.

The woman, who also lives in the 500 block of Crownwood Court, was taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening.

She told police she and Ogle were in an altercation, after which Ogle allegedly left. Police said Ogle broke a window out of his vehicle and retrieved the large knife he was carrying. He was trying to kick in the door of the home when he saw police, according to an earlier statement on the incident from the Sheriff's Office.

Ogle allegedly took an unknown amount of pills before the alleged assault.

He has been charged with three counts of second-degree assault, three counts of having a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, resisting arrest and two counts of first-degree assault.

Deputy First Class Bryan Walker, 34, a seven-year member of the Sheriff's Office, has been identified as the deputy who shot Ogle.

Walker remains on routine administrative leave, as the investigation continues.

The incident is this year's first shooting incident involving a Sheriff's Office deputy. The agency was involved in three such cases in 2013, two of them fatal.
