PERRY HALL, Md. (AP) - The Latest on the slaying of a police officer in Baltimore County, Maryland (all times local):

8:10 a.m.

Police say a teen has been arrested after the slaying of a Baltimore County, Maryland, police officer, and three other suspects are still being sought.

The Baltimore County Police and Fire Department said Tuesday on Twitter that the 16-year-old was arrested shortly after the female officer was fatally injured Monday. The police tweet did not explain the delay in announcing the teen's apprehension. The teen's name was not immediately released. Police said he is awaiting a bail hearing.

The officer was fatally wounded while investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle in a greater Baltimore suburb. The suspects were considered armed and dangerous.

Baltimore County Police Cpl. Shawn Vinson said Monday evening that heavily armed police - backed by trained dogs and aircraft - were conducting the wide manhunt in and around Perry Hall, Maryland, where the office was fatally injured Monday afternoon.

Schools in Baltimore County, Maryland, are set to open on time Tuesday, a day after the slaying of a police officer forced teachers and students to stay inside their school buildings.

School officials tweeted overnight that all of the county's public schools would open on time. They said additional police would be on hand at Perry Hall area schools, and additional student support services would also be available there.

Meanwhile, authorities continued searching for suspects believed to be armed and dangerous after a female officer was fatally wounded while investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle in a greater Baltimore suburb.

Police say they are searching overnight for suspects believed to be armed and dangerous after the death of a female officer killed while investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle in a greater Baltimore suburb.

Baltimore County Police Cpl. Shawn Vinson said Monday evening that heavily armed police - backed by trained dogs and aircraft - were conducting the wide manhunt in and around Perry Hall, Maryland, where the office was fatally injured Monday afternoon.

The police spokesman says "the dark will not hamper our investigation."

Witnesses reported hearing a pop and seeing the officer being run over by a Jeep Monday afternoon. The officer, who wasn't immediately identified, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Vinson says officers recovered the suspects' abandoned Jeep. He wouldn't confirm if the vehicle was used to injure the officer.
