Prince George’s County, Maryland…The Prince George’s County Police Department is seeking two Good Samaritans who assisted with a traffic accident that led to a Takoma Park Police Department-involved shooting.
Prince George’s County Detectives are attempting to locate a black female who stopped to assist motorists involved in a multi-vehicle accident without realizing that one of the motorists was wanted by Takoma Park Police. That wanted motorist then attempted to carjack the woman’s red BMW. During the attempted carjacking, a Hispanic male came to her aid and engaged the suspect.
A Takoma Park Police patrol officer arrived shortly thereafter and struggled with the suspect as she attempted to apprehend the man. A second Takoma Park police officer, fearing for the safety of his partner, was forced to discharge his service weapon, striking the suspect. The man, identified as Keston David Lewis, 19, of the 700 block of Linden Oak Place in Odenton was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police would like to talk with the Good Samaritans to learn more about the incident.
