Question of the Day
Suspect in slaying commits suicide
The man sought in the weekend slaying of his mother in Prince George’s County fatally shot himself in Delaware after leading officers on a car chase, the Wilmington Police Department said yesterday.
The suspect, Christopher Gary, 27, of Germantown, was apprehended by Wilmington police officers Monday night and engaged them in a gunbattle. However, the autopsy shows that Gary died by shooting himself in the mouth, authorities said.
City police have placed the two officers on administrative leave until an internal investigation is complete.
Officer returns fire, kills suspect
The Chesapeake Police Department said an officer killed a man who shot at him yesterday.
A police spokeswoman identified the dead man as Jermaine Savage, 24.
The spokeswoman said the officer tried to pull over a car with no license plates at about 8:30 a.m. Then when the cars came to a stop, Mr. Savage got out and fired at the officer.
The officer returned fire, hitting Mr. Savage, who died later at a local hospital. The officer was not injured.
Police are investigating the shooting.
