NEWS RELEASE
Two Deputies Murdered in Line of Duty
[February 11, 2016, Abindgon, MD]
On Wednesday, February 10, 2016, Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior
Deputy Mark Logsdon of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office were killed in
the line of duty while faithfully serving the citizens of Harford County.
At approximately 11:40 a.m., the Harford County Department of Emergency
Services received a call from a citizen concerning a suspicious
circumstance, indicating a wanted person was in the Panera Bread restaurant
located in the 3400 block of Merchant Drive in Abingdon, Maryland.
At approximately 11:46 a.m., Deputies were dispatched to the location in an
attempt to locate the wanted subject who had been described by the caller.
The investigation has revealed that Senior Deputy Dailey arrived at the
Panera Bread a short time after the initial dispatch, entered and
approached a subject meeting the description who was seated alone at a
table. While speaking to Senior Deputy Dailey, the suspect, without
warning, produced a handgun and shot Senior Deputy Dailey in the head. The
suspect then exited the Panera Bread and ran in the direction of Parkview
at Box Hill, a senior living apartment center.
Within moments, a second Deputy arrived at the restaurant and located
Senior Deputy Dailey with a gunshot wound.
Shortly after 12:00 p.m., Senior Deputy Logsdon, who had arrived on scene,
exited his vehicle and, along with additional Harford County deputies,
located the suspect seated in the front seat of a vehicle in the parking
lot at Parkview at Box Hill. Upon contact by Senior Deputy Logsdon, the
suspect fired multiple rounds at the Deputy, mortally wounding him.
Deputies within close proximity, including Senior Deputy Logsdon, returned
fire, striking and killing the suspect. He has subsequently been
identified as David Brian Evans (W/M, 12/25/47) who has no fixed address.
The loaded handgun used to murder Senior Deputy Logsdon and Senior Deputy
Dailey was recovered from the suspect.
Lifesaving efforts were immediately administered to both Senior Deputy
Dailey and Senior Deputy Logsdon by Sheriff’s Deputies on scene. Abingdon
and Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Departments responded and continued their
life saving efforts. Senior Deputy Dailey was transported from the scene
by Maryland State Police helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock
Trauma Center. Senior Deputy Logsdon was transported to the University of
Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. Both succumbed to their injuries.
Investigators from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office are continuing to
work tirelessly to reconstruct the events surrounding these senseless
murders.
Senior Deputy Dailey had served with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office
for 30 years and was assigned to the Court Services Division. He was also
a lifelong member of the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company. He is
survived by his two children, girlfriend and mother.
Senior Deputy Logsdon had served with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office
for 16 years and was assigned to the Community Services Division. He is
survived by his wife, three children, and parents.
Both Senior Deputy Dailey and Senior Deputy Logsdon served in the
military. Senior Deputy Dailey served in the Marines; Senior Deputy
Logsdon served in the United States Army.
Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler and the members of the Harford County Sheriff’s
Office would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the Maryland State
Police, Maryland Transportation Authority Police, the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Bel Air Police Department, Aberdeen
Police Department, Havre de Grace Police Department, Baltimore County
Police Department, the State Highway Administration, Harford County
Department of Emergency Services, and all the local fire companies who
assisted yesterday. Their assistance greatly helped our agency get through
yesterday’s tragic events.

Wed., Feb. 10, 2016 Harford Co. MD Sheriff Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsd

Wed., Feb. 10, 2016 Harford Co. MD Sheriff Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and
Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon were shot and killed by an emotionally disturbed
person who was wanted for assaulting a police officer in Florida.
According to the “Officer Down Memorial Page.” The deputies had been
dispatched to the restaurant after the man's ex-wife had called to report
the subject was there. Deputy Dailey, who knew the subject, sat down at the
man's table and asked how he was doing. Without warning the subject
produced a handgun and shot the deputy in the head, killing him.
The man fled into the parking lot where he was confronted by Deputy
Logsdon. The subject shot and killed Deputy Logsdon before he was killed by
two other deputies.
Deputy Dailey was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the
Harford County Sheriff's Office for 30 years. He is survived by his two
children and mother.” Hat tip to my brother, Jason Tyler, for getting this
information out to us.
Please join me in prayers for members of our LE families all over the US.
Today, I ask for prayers for the Harford Co Sheriff's Department. Two
members of their department were shot down in cold blood yesterday, Wed.
Feb. 10, 2016. Both leave behind families, colleagues, and friends that are
heartbroken and shocked. Please keep them and their families in your
prayers. We pray for our greater community that is shocked and fed up with
the senseless violence committed against the very folks who protect us and
keep us safe. We are so heartbroken. Amen
The violence committed against our officers must come to an end. Our men
and women in blue must know that the vast majority stand with them and
appreciate their service to our community. And we stand against the
community leaders that trade in the empty rhetoric that attempts to divide
us or does not understand that without public safety you have no community.
