PGPD Investigating City of Seat Pleasant Police Department Officer-Involved Shooting

Prince George’s County Police Detectives with our Criminal Investigation Division along with the Special Investigation Response Team of our Internal Affairs Division are investigating an officer-involved shooting involving an on-duty City of Seat Pleasant police officer.  

Preliminarily, on January 17th around 3:45pm, a City of Seat Pleasant police officer conducted a traffic stop on Central Avenue near East Capitol Street.  The officer exited his patrol car and as he was approaching the stopped driver’s window, the driver sped off.  There was a very brief pursuit which the officer called off, but then saw the vehicle turn down a dead-end street. The officer followed, stopped his patrol car, got out and retreated to the rear of his patrol vehicle, then began to give the driver loud verbal commands.  At that time, the driver ignored his commands and accelerated, fleeing the area.  For reasons which remain under investigation, the officer discharged his service weapon multiple times.  There was another gun later located near the scene of the incident.  Our detectives are working to determine whether it is connected to the case.      

Today, our detectives located and recovered the involved-citizen’s vehicle in Northeast DC.  We are still working to identify and locate the driver.  It is unknown if the driver was injured in the shooting.   

For information about the employment status and related information about the involved-officer, please refer to a statement from the City of Seat Pleasant Police Department which can be located at seatpleasantmd.gov
