A man barricaded in his room was hospitalized after being shot by police in Calvert County, Maryland early Saturday morning.

A man, whom police were going to arrest, was hospitalized after being shot dead by deputies in Calvert County, Maryland, early Saturday.

Officers shot the man in his bedroom, where he had barricaded himself after firing a gun.

Ronald Joseph Garraway, 59, of Chesapeake Beach, is charged with first-degree assault, according to a news release from the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office. Police were in the process of issuing a warrant for his arrest when they arrived at his residence around 9:45 p.m. Friday evening.

Garraway armed himself and barricaded himself in his room, the sheriff’s office said. Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s county deputies responded to the scene, according to the news release.

They made plans to arrest Garraway safely and attempted to negotiate with him until the early hours of Saturday. It was then that Garraway “suddenly fired at officers,” according to the press release.

Deputies opened fire and beat the barricaded man in his room.

Emergency services took Garraway to a hospital where he is in “stable condition” and deputies were “safely discharged” from Garraway’s home, the statement said.
