SALISBURY, Md. - Authorities in Wicomico County are continuing their search for fugitive Edwin Lamont Fletcher, as more charges have been filed against him.

Maryland State Police say they have obtained a warrant charging 31-year-old Fletcher, with 1st and 2nd degree attempted murder, 1st and 2nd degree assault, along with other related charges. This warrant is in addition to the felony drug warrant charges that Police were attempting to arrest Fletcher on at the time of the alleged incident.

Fletcher is wanted, after he allegedly drove into and over a Police car that had two Maryland State Troopers, and one Wicomico County Sheriff's Deputy inside, while driving a rented Dodge Ram truck.

All three police officers were treated for their injuries at Peninsula Regional Medical Center, and released on Thursday. They are reportedly on leave while they recover from their injuries.

According to the report, three other Police Officers, a state trooper assigned to the State Police Gang Enforcement Unit, a deputy assigned to the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force, and a Salisbury Police Department officer assigned to the Gang Enforcement Unit, fired their weapons at the suspect, after the lives of the Officers in the car were threatened by Fletecher's actions. There is apparently no indication that Fletcher, or the unidentified person with him was hit by gunfire.

The injured officers and the officers who fired their weapons will be reportedly not be identified, as each of the officers works undercover, and releasing their identities could jeopardize their personal safety.

Maryland State Police say their Homicide Unit is continuing to investigate the police involved shooting.

Fletcher, who is still wanted on those warrants, is described as 31-years-old, 6' 2" tall, weighting 180 pounds and his last known address is on the 27000-block Riverside Drive Extended, in Salisbury.
