Officer Injured, Cruiser Stolen, Two Dead After Chase, Shootout
A New Carrollton officer was injured after being struck by a mentally disturbed subject who stole a police cruiser after a shootout with Prince Georges County officers in an incident that also killed the disturbed suspect’s female family member.
Prince Georges County officers were called to a residence on Seans Terrace in Lanham at around 1 a.m.last night on a suicidal male call. Officers were immediately met with gunfire upon arrival as one of the responding officers left his vehicle as it was struck in the windshield to take cover behind another officer’s vehicle. The subject then took the officers’ vehicle, striking and killing a female family member from the residence during the initial gunfight with officers.
The male suspect continued driving down Seans Terrace, turning on Finns Lane and Fury Avenue where he sideswiped a New Carrollton police vehicle, hitting another police car head-on where the incident terminated as the officers took the male into custody.
