PG police shoot at suspect after scuffle

Prince George’s County police opened fire on a man who scuffled with them early Sunday after they responded to a domestic dispute in the Temple Hills neighborhood, police said.

The man, who police did not publicly identify or describe, apparently was not struck by police gunshots and he fled from the scene, according to Corporal Evan Baxter, a Prince George’s police spokesman.

Baxter said two officers encountered the man leaving a residence in the 2600 block of Keating Street when they responded at about 4 a.m. to a call about a domestic dispute at that address.

One or both of the officers fired an undetermined number of bullets at the man after he tussled with them, Baxter said.
