BALTIMORE — A veteran Baltimore County police officer and the longtime commander of the department's tactical unit died Monday of a stroke he suffered a day earlier after leading the investigation into a murder-suicide in Randallstown.

Lt. Michael Howe spent Sunday morning at the home of a man who called police to say he had killed his wife and was about to shoot himself.
