MSP Investigate Early Morning Barricade in Carroll County

Posted: Updated:

MANCHESTER, Md. - Maryland State Police say they successfully arrested a Carroll County man after he allegedly fired a shot early this morning and refused to come out of the house where he lives.

According to reports, Jordan Ecker, 31, of the 4200 block of Hanover Pike, Manchester, was armed with two assault weapons and two handguns. After negotiations, Ecker reportedly was taken into custody for an emergency petition and transported to Carroll Hospital for evaluation. Once released, he will allegedly be charged with reckless endangerment.

Troopers say at about 3:45 AM, they responded to a call for shots fired at a residence in the 4200 block of Hanover Pike in Carroll County. According to witness accounts, Ecker returned to his residence intoxicated. Authorities say for Ecker became extremely agitated and fired one shot into a wall and another into the floor. Troopers say they are still unsure why, but no one was injured in the incident.

Police say they believe Ecker passed out a short time later. A friend in the residence allegedly told police once Ecker passed out, he secured the two assault weapons and two handguns in Ecker's possession. Having information that additional weapons were in the house, state police troopers, along with deputies from the Carroll County Sheriff Department, reportedly established a perimeter and called for the Special Tactical Assault Team Element and State Police Hostage Recovery Team negotiators. Investigators from the Criminal Enforcement Division, with the assistance of family and friends, reportedly attempted to make contact with Ecker and resolved the situation peacefully.

Troopers say shortly before 7:00 AM,, members of the State Police Special Tactical Assault Team Element entered the home. Ecker was allegedly arrested without further incident.

State Police investigators say they are currently searching the residence for additional weapons. Hanover Pike was reportedly closed for approximately three and half hours due to the incident.
