Police serving a warrant early yesterday at an eastern Baltimore County home as part of a homicide investigation shot and killed the suspect's father, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 5 a.m., after tactical unit officers entered the residence of a suspect in the death of a Dundalk man, Baltimore County police said. Another man in the house reached for a gun and refused police demands to stop, and an officer fired several shots, hitting the man at least once, county police said.
