    CALVERT COUNTY, Md. ( DC News Now ) — The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office said a Maryland State Police (MSP) Trooper was hurt after suspects hit him during a pursuit on Tuesday afternoon.

    Deputies first responded to the report of a theft in progress just after 4 p.m. at the Harris Teeter on Ward Road in Dunkirk. They found two men fleeing the scene in a white Nissan Altima.

    Troopers tried stopping the car as it traveled southbound on Rt. 4, but the suspects refused to pull over, initiating a pursuit.

    Police said the Nissan was speeding in the area of Harvey Road in Huntington when it tried ramming a detective’s police vehicle before continuing to flee.

    Deputies arrested 23-year-old Shadeed Gregory Graham of Capitol Heights, 27-year-old Malik Demencio Lewis of Hagerstown and 27-year-old Jordan Green of Bowie.

    They were all charged with Attempted First-Degree Murder, multiple counts of First-Degree Assault and other related charges.

    The injured trooper was taken to Baltimore’s Shock Trauma Center where he was evaluated and treated. He has since been released.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact detectives at (410) 535-2800 or email Michael.Mudd@calvertcountymd.gov.
