(Update) Prince George's County Police Officer Shot

Kelly Gordon Gilliss

This morning at approximately 12:30 a.m., a Prince George's County police officer was shot while working part time at the Galaxy night club in Langley Park. An adult male and two females were ejected from the club for disorderly conduct. The three suspects got into a white Honda. The male suspect who was the driver of the Honda, reached through the passenger door window and began firing a handgun towards the entry of the club. One round struck Officer Rachael Jacob in the leg. Officers returned fire. The Honda fled the scene and was stopped by police a short distance away. All three suspects were apprehended and a handgun was recovered.

32-year-old Kelly Gilliss of the 11000 block of Cherry Hill Road in Beltsville was charged with:

  • 3 counts of attempt murder
  • 3 counts of first-degree assault
  • 3 counts of second-degree assault
  • 3 counts of discharge of firearm from vehicle
  • 1 count of concealed deadly weapon

Officer Jacob is a four-year veteran of the Prince George's County Police Department. Officer Jacob is recovering after having surgery this morning to remove the bullet from her leg.

Please don't place an event in Langley Park if it didn't take place in Langley Park. If you don't know where Langley Park is, then consult the county's planning department or the US Census. I'm sure this error was one of ignorance rather than an attempt to smear the Langley Park area, but it is the latter effect that is harmful. -W. Hanna
