Prince George’s County, Maryland… The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Special Investigative Response Team is investigating a police involved shooting that occurred in Greenbelt, Maryland.
On November 11, 2010, at approximately 12:27 a.m., an off-duty Prince George’s County Police Officer had returned to his residence in the 8500 block of Greenbelt Road after his tour of duty working a desk assignment. As the plain clothed officer was removing items from his personal vehicle, he was approached by an armed suspect who brandished a handgun and demanded the officer’s wallet. The officer drew his departmentally issued firearm and there was an exchange of gunfire between the officer and suspect. The suspect fled on foot and the officer was uninjured. It is unknown if the suspect, who still remains at large, was struck.
The officer, a recent graduate of the police academy who is assigned to the District IV Station, has been placed on administrative leave as a result of this incident.
“This serves as a reminder of the dangers, on or off-duty, that law enforcement officers can experience throughout their careers,” said Prince George’s County Police Chief Roberto Hylton.
Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Special Investigative Response Team at (301) 856-2660 or the Press Information Office at (301) 772-4710.
