CENTREVILLE, Md. — A police officer shot and killed a 25-year-old inmate after he escaped from a Queen Anne's County correctional facility and fired a gun at police on Wednesday, authorities said.

Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley identified the inmate as Michael J. Schluderberg, of Baltimore. Police said around 6 p.m. Schluderberg walked off from the Eastern Correctional Institution Pre-Release Unit in Church Hill, where he was serving a three-year sentence for second degree assault.

A short time later Queen Anne's Sheriff's deputies were called to the 600 block of Carvel Place Road for a reported break-in. The homeowner told police that he had returned home to find a loaded handgun, as well as several magazines of ammunition and other items had been stolen.
