Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio, 29, died one year ago today while responding to a call of a suspicious vehicle in Perry Hall. She got out of her police car and attempted to stop the driver, who accelerated the vehicle and fatally struck Caprio.
Baltimore County officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges today.
Dawanta Harris, a 17-year-old from West Baltimore, was convicted May 1 of felony murder in Caprio’s death and will be sentenced in July. Prosecutors are expected to seek life in prison for the teen.
