Taneytown, Maryland: Prosecutors Concluded Man Shot and Killed Sister in Self-Defense

Prosecutors have concluded that a Carroll County man acted in self-defense when he shot and killed his sister in April.

The Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office said Friday that Richard Edward Hunter, 48, of Taneytown, acted in lawful self-defense of himself and others when he shot and killed Mary Glacken.

Investigators said Glacken went to Hunter’s house on April 12 and fired a handgun at the front porch, where Hunter was standing.

Investigators said Hunter retrieved a shotgun from a bedroom where his mother and wife were inside. Hunter then shot Glacken once in the chest.

Prosecutors said authorities reviewed police reports, witnesses’ statements, pictures of the scene and autopsy results.
