Prince George’s Co. Investigates Police-Involved Shooting
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Police in Prince George’s County are continuing to investigate a police-involved shooting in District Heights on Saturday evening.
Authorities from Prince George’s County and District Heights say they were called to the 6000 block of Marlboro Pike for reports of a commercial robbery, just before 9:00 p.m.
The investigation shows three suspects entered a business, assaulted an employee and stole money.
As officers were on their way to the scene, they saw the possible suspects driving away. The officers then followed the car, which was later revealed to be stolen, onto Parkland Court, where it pulled into a parking lot.
The three suspects jumped out of the car and each ran in a different direction.
One of the suspects, Bobby Frederick Dews, 25, of the 700 block of 18th Street in NW, quickly jumped into a nearby car. The responding officers originally believed Dews was attempting to carjack the vehicle.
When officers attempted to confront Dew, an exchange of gunfire ensured and both a District Heights police officer and Dews were struck.
The follow-up investigation shows the driver of that second car was serving as the getaway driver. Police identified her as Jordann Denise Walker,22, of the 5100 block of 57th Avenue in Bladensburg.
Patrol officers searching the area found and arrested one of the two remaining suspects a short time later. He is identified as Charles Sander Davis, Jr., 35, of the unit block of Maryland Park Drive in Capitol Heights. The remaining suspect remains at large.
Dew was taken to a local area hospital and remains in stable condition. The District Heights officer was treated for minor injuries. The Prince George’s County officer was not hurt in the shootout.
Dews, Davis, and Walker all face multiple charges in connection with the armed robbery. Walker and Davis remain in custody at the Department of Corrections. Davis is being held on no bond; Walker is being held on a $200,000 bond.
This remains an on-going investigation.
