United States Fourth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

Wilson v. Prince George's County, Md , 17-1856

Affirmed in part, vacated in part, and remanded. Plaintiff was shot several times during an encounter with the police. The police were responding to an emergency call that plaintiff had committed burglary and assault. Plaintiff sued alleging excessive force in violation of the Fourth Amendment and that the police conduct violated Maryland law. The trial court granted summary judgment to the defendants holding that the police were enjoyed qualified immunity and no constitutional violations occurred. The appellate court held that the police violated plaintiffs Fourth Amendment rights, but that the police had qualified immunity. Because the trial court did not address the violation of the Fourth Amendment rights under Maryland law the case is remanded.
