Police: Hospital slaying likely wasn’t random
Question of the Day
BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police on Monday said a slaying at Suburban Hospital over the weekend likely wasn’t a random act of violence.
Police also revealed that 40-year-old Roosevelt Brockington Jr. was stabbed to death.
Police spokeswoman Lucille Baur said investigators are trying to determine who, if anyone, had a reason to harm Mr. Brockington. She said it’s not certain the victim knew his attacker, but it appears likely that he was targeted. A specific motive for the slaying hasn’t been established.
Mr. Brockington lived in Lusby, Md., and had worked at Suburban since 2006. He was an engineer responsible for maintaining the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems at the hospital in Bethesda.
The slaying Saturday morning led police to lock down the hospital for four hours while they searched for suspects.
