A Prince George’s County Grand Jury today indicted Michael, Malik and Elijah Ford for the attack on our District III police station in March.
On March 13, 2016, Michael Ford opened fire on the station as his two brothers watched and recorded the unprovoked attack. That ambush led to the fatal shooting of our officer, 28-year-old Detective Jacai Colson.
Chief Hank Stawinski released this statement today on the indictments:
"We thank the citizens of the Grand Jury who handed down the indictments today. While this is a significant responsibility in and of itself, the product of their work supports the men and women of the Prince George's County Police Department and affirms the sacrifices they make for our community, and for that I'm deeply appreciative. This decision is another step in the process of ensuring justice is served on behalf of the Colson family, this police department and this community."
