RadioOnFire.com – A Baltimore County jury on Wednesday convicted a Baltimore teen of felony murder, first-degree burglary and auto theft for running over and killing a Baltimore County police officer outside a home during a burglary.

The jury deliberated for about six hours over Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

Dawnta Harris, 17, was behind the wheel of a stolen Jeep when he was confronted by Officer Amy Caprio. Jurors saw video from that day, including from Caprio’s body-worn camera. She followed the Jeep into a cul-de-sac. got out of her car, and repeatedly ordered Harris to get out of the Jeep. He opened the door, hesitated, closed the door then drove at Caprio.

That he hit Caprio wasn’t in dispute. However, defense attorneys attempted to paint Harris as a scared teenage boy who didn’t know how to react when Caprio confronted him, and didn’t know he had hit her. They claimed he had no role in the burglary. Prosecutors pointed to Harris’ repeated attempts to mislead police.
