Maryland Officer Killed Outside Police Headquarters

A Maryland police officer was killed Sunday afternoon and two people were in custody after what authorities called an “unprovoked attack.”

Prince George’s County Police Officer Jacai Colson, 28, was pronounced dead after being taken to Prince George’s Hospital Center.

Gunfire erupted at around 4:30 p.m. local time in Landover, a suburb northeast of downtown Washington, D.C. Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski told a press conference that the initial gunfire prompted several officers to return fire at the alleged shooter, who was wounded but was expected to survive.
