Baltimore County police say they shot a woman in Pikesville early Saturday after she pulled a handgun on an officer.

The woman was in serious condition at a local hospital Saturday evening but expected to survive, police said.

According to a news release, the officer was called to the 3100 block of North Brook Road before 2 a.m. to investigate a report of a suspicious person. He saw a woman throw a large rock at a house, officials said, breaking a window.

The woman allegedly drew a handgun, and police said the officer repeatedly ordered her to drop, then shot her multiple times in the upper body. Police have not identified the officer or the suspect.

Neighbors in the quiet community of split-level homes described seeing several police cars spill onto their street in the middle of the night. Many Orthodox Jews and young families live along Northbrook Road, and the incident took place just a few blocks from Wellwood International School.

Baltimore County police said the incident was the department's first officer-involved shooting of the year.
