SALISBURY, Md. (WJZ) — The investigation continues into a fatal trooper-involved shooting.

Maryland State Police say Winfield Fisher, 32, struck and dragged a trooper with his car.

Investigators believe Fisher entered the Salisbury barrack around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and asked an officer to check a vehicle repair made after he received a safety equipment repair order.

The officer went outside. Shortly after, he called for backup. Another trooper went to assist.

Police believe both officers then fired their service weapons.

The original officer was found lying along the edge of the parking lot near the entrance. His injuries are consistent with being struck or dragged by a vehicle.

Fisher was found in his vehicle about 150 yards north of the barrack. His vehicle had struck the center median guardrail on Rt. 13 North.

The officer is being treated for injuries; Fisher was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Route 13 was shut down during the investigation.
