The employee is a licensed Special Police Officer and carries a current permit to carry a handgun. He was in plainclothes with his badge displayed and his weapon was holstered on his hip and was visible. After the employee stopped Dance to investigate, Dance began to repeatedly punch and assault the employee, at which time, for reasons that remain under investigation, the employee discharged his firearm one time striking Dance. The entire incident was captured on store surveillance video. There are numerous witnesses in this case and the investigation is ongoing. The investigation has revealed that Dance was not armed.  The employee has not been charged at this point in the investigation. 

Detectives are working in close consultation with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office. It has been determined that the case, once completed, will be presented to a Grand Jury for review.
