    Maryland State Trooper Shot to Death

    The search continues for a BG who shot an off-duty Maryland State Trooper just outside D.C. The Trooper was working security at an Appleby's...

    Trooper Wesley Brown, a 3 1/2 year veteran of the police force, had been assigned to the Forestville barracks. He was 24 and recently engaged to be married.

    "He was working an off-duty, part-time employment, secondary employment as a security person," says Prince George's County Lt. Col. Michael Blow.

    Brown was not in uniform at the time of the 12:40 a.m. shooting but had been wearing an armored vest. He was wearing a jacket that identified him as a police officer, Sheridan says.

    Police say Brown may have been killed by a unruly customer who refused to pay his bill. Brown had escorted the customer from the restaurant. He was shot on the parking lot.

    May the Officer rest in peace. May the BG burn for all eternity.

    I hope and pray that his family and department can find peace. And that the BG gets caught, so he can get his.

    Sad! Prayers for Trooper, his family and fiancee! It's a shame the shooters identity was not recorded during the first incident, even if only on a note pad!

    Still no suspects...but a reward for info has been offered...

    Police and the state of Maryland are now offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed an off-duty Maryland state trooper Friday.

    The shooting occurred soon after Trooper 1st Class Wesley W. Brown, 24, escorted an unruly customer from the Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar on Donnell Drive Thusday evening. The customer was upset over a disputed bill.

    When Brown left the restaurant around 12:40 a.m. Friday, someone shot him, Prince George's County Police spokesman Maj. Andy Ellis said.

    Ellis said police had not identified a suspect. State Police Superintendent Col. Terrence Sheridan said earlier that the disorderly customer, who fled, was the shooter, but Ellis said investigators had not been able to confirm that.

    Ellis called that customer a person of interest and released a description. He is a black man, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, about 135 pounds with short hair, a little bit of a beard and a dark complexion. He was wearing a light blue Hugo Boss type jacket. Police are trying to determine if other people were involved.

    Investigators found multiple shell casings, but there was no indication more than one weapon was used.

    SUSPECT IN CUSTODY!


    Police Monday afternoon will announce more than one arrest in the murder of Maryland State Trooper 1st Class Wesley W. Brown.
    Prince George's County police are planning a 2 p.m. news conference.

    Brown was shot to death while working a second job as a security guard at Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar early Friday.

    Police took a "person of interest" into custody over the weekend.

    Surveillance footage shows Brown escorting that individual - an unruly customer - from the restaurant on Donnell Drive Thursday evening. The customer was upset over a disputed bill.

    The man, who is being held on an unrelated charge, has not been publicly identified.
