The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a shooting involving an off-duty Prince George's County Sheriff's deputy.
On July 24, 2016, at about 1:50 am, our patrol officers along with deputies from the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office were called to the 10500 block of Campus Way South in Largo for the departmental shooting.
The preliminary investigation revealed the deputy was approached by two men in a parking lot. At least one of the suspects had a gun. Preliminarily, it's believed the suspects intended to rob the deputy. One of the suspects shot at the deputy who then returned fire. The deputy wasn't hurt.
