Prince George’s firefighter killed in shooting near Nationals Park

A Prince George’s County firefighter was killed in a shooting Saturday night near Nationals Park that also left two other people wounded, authorities said.

D.C. police said Garry Stanley Sr., 44, of Fort Washington, Md., was shot around 11 p.m. in the 1300 block of Half Street SW, about a block from the ballpark in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood. Another man and a woman were also shot in the incident, but both survived, police said.

The Prince George’s Fire Department posted a memorial statement Sunday on Facebook saying Stanley was a longtime firefighter, assigned to Station 824/Accokeek.

“It is with great sadness the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department announces the death of Firefighter Garry Stanley. Firefighter Stanley was a career member of the department with more than 19 years of service,” the statement read.

“Please keep Garry’s family and brothers and sisters in the fire service in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time,” it said.

Police also released the name of a woman killed Friday night in a separate incident in Southwest Washington that left five others with gunshot wounds.

The woman, Temika Johnson, 35, of Southwest was found fatally shot at 11:15 p.m. in the unit block of Forrester Street SW, according to police. Another woman and four men were taken to hospitals with injuries.

Additionally, police said that about 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, a man was fatally shot in the 1600 block of Kenilworth Avenue NE. Detectives are investigating the incident as a death investigation rather than a homicide, said Officer Sean Hickman, a D.C. police spokesman.
