The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested a Forestville man today after he shot at police officers. The officers were executing a search warrant on his home.
Jeremiah Ronald Pearson
Detectives believe after the first shot was fired, the suspect’s gun jammed, preventing the suspect from firing additional rounds. The gunman then ran to a rear bedroom and threw the weapon out a window. Police officers were then able to arrest the suspect without further incident. In addition to the .22 caliber handgun, officers recovered hundreds of rounds of ammunition, suspected marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
The suspect is identified as 25 year-old Jeremiah Ronald Pearson, of the 3300 block of Walters Lane in Forestville. Pearson is charged with multiple counts of attempted murder. Pearson is being transferred to the Department of Corrections where a court commissioner will determine his bond status.
