Suspect named in Damascus shooting
Police in Montgomery County have identified the bank robbery suspect shot and wounded by a police officer Tuesday as 30-year-old Samuel D. Faulk, of Germantown.
Faulk remains in serious but stable condition at an area hospital, authorities said.
He was shot and wounded Tuesday in a Damascus cornfield after he drove his car at an officer at the end of a chase, police have said.
Officers had been pursuing Faulk after he apparently robbed two PNC banks, one in Damascus and one in Germantown, earlier in the morning, police have have said.
Police also identified the officer who shot Faulk as Dennis Roland, an 11-year veteran assigned to the 5th District.
Roland has been placed on routine administrative leave while police investigate the circumstances of the shooting. Reached by phone Wednesday, he declined to comment saying he could not do so before a grand jury had heard the case.
