UPPER MARLBORO

Officer indicted in shooting incident

A Prince George’s County grand jury indicted a county police officer and former homeland security official on second-degree murder and other charges yesterday for the January shooting of two furniture delivery men.

Cpl. Keith Washington, 46, of Accokeek, was indicted on charges related to the shooting at his home when the men dropped off a bedroom set Jan. 24. Brandon Clark, 22, died later from his wounds while Robert White, 36, was injured.

Cpl. Washington used his police-issued handgun and said he acted in self-defense when he found the men in a part of the house where they did not belong.

Along with second-degree murder, Cpl. Washington was indicted on charges that include attempted second-degree murder, assault and handgun violations.

It is the second indictment of Cpl. Washington for incidents with firearms at his home. In June, he was indicted on assault charges after a real estate appraiser said Cpl. Washington brandished a gun when he came to his house by mistake.

He lost his job as a county homeland security officer after the incident and has since been suspended from his police job.
