    Armed Security Guard Shoots Armed BG

    washingtonpost.com

    A private security guard shot and killed a 26-year-old man at an apartment complex near Glassmanor Elementary School in Oxon Hill yesterday morning, Prince George's County police said.

    About 9 a.m., the guard approached two men in the 1000 block of Marcy Avenue, said Cpl. Arvel Lewis, a police spokesman. One of the men produced a handgun, and the guard opened fire, striking him, Lewis said. The other man fled the complex on foot.

    The wounded man, later identified as Dominique Emanuel McFadden, of the 800 block of Marcy Avenue, died at a hospital. Police found a gun in his possession, Lewis said.

    Lewis said police are looking for the other man, described as black, 18 to 20 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a baseball cap.

    Police have not identified the security guard.

    Glassmanor Elementary School was locked down briefly after the shooting, but it had reopened by midday.

    Lewis said it was unclear what caused the confrontation or whether the two men shot at the security guard. Lewis said that it appears that the security guard's action was justifiable but that an investigation of the shooting had to be completed.

    "It appears that he was doing his job, which is to check on people within the apartment complex," Lewis said. McFadden "pulled a gun on the guard. . . . You've got to defend yourself, definitely."

    This from a PG County police spokesman?! Will wonders never cease...

    Glad the guard is OK, glad he was armed, glad he was quicker/better/more determined than the BG. I hope it is (and is legally found to be) a good shoot.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Wow

    A non-LEO righteous shooting in Maryland?

    Did the Castle Doctrine pass?

    Or, is this a very local reaction?

    Good for him.

    Presumably the security guard was in uniform and was carrying openly.....

    .....and this guy still pulled a gun. Imagine the result if the security guard had been unarmed!

    +1!

    That statement coming from a PG police toward such a scenario is just amazing, and ironic considering PC county crime history.

    Maybe just maybe pigs will fly.
