Police: Incident that Ended in Shooting Was Not Random

Saturday was not the first time a Pikesville family had encountered Stephanie Kalot, whom police shot in front of their Northbrook Road home.

When Stephanie Kamlot was shot by a police officer Saturday outside a Pikesville home, it was not the first time the residents had come in contact with her.

The family has had interactions with her in court, Det. Cathleen Batton, spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Police Department, said Tuesday morning.

"This was not a random incident at all. The victim and the suspect in this case have previous court involvement," she said.

Batton said she does not yet have details of those encounters.

Kamlot was shot by a Pikesville precinct police officer early Saturday as she was outside a home in the 3100 block of Northbrook Road.

Police believe Kamlot had thrown a rock into a window. Officers had asked her multiple times to drop her weapon--a metallic replica of a handgun.

She refused to surrender the weapon, and a police officer shot her several times in the upper body. Police are not releasing the officer's full name, but said he is an eight-year veteran of the department.

Kamlot remains in a hospital in Baltimore City where she is being treated for her wounds and was to have psychological examination, police said.

When she is released, she will be taken to the Baltimore County Detention Center and held on $500,000 bail.
