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. There, the 55-year-old commander ordered his officers to enter the house of an armed man, just as he had done hundreds of times before. Officers found two bodies in the basement.
