The Lothian man who was fatally shot in his home by an Anne Arundel County police officer discharged his weapon first, police said yesterday.

Police also identified the officer who killed Mansfield Albert Hurley as Officer Timothy Schultz, an 8 1/2 -year veteran of the force.

He and other members of a tactical team forced their way into Hurley's home in the 5100 block of Sands Drive at 10:47 p.m. Nov. 2 in connection with a shooting that morning that left another man wounded.

Hurley, 25, pointed a rifle at the officers and ignored commands to lower his weapon, police said.

The ensuing investigation found that Hurley fired once at officers before Schultz fatally shot him.

Ronnie Cornelius Hall, 41, of Lothian told police that Hurley shot him in the abdomen and leg about 2:50 a.m. in front of his home in the 1100 block of Mount Zion Marlboro Road.

Schultz has been placed on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
