P.G. man exchanges gunfire with police
Question of the Day
A 21 year-old man exchanged gunfire with police and led officers on a chase in a stolen cruiser in College Park on Thursday night, Prince George’s County police said.
Police responded to a 911 call around 10:21 p.m. Thursday from Mr. McKoy’s mother, who said her son was high on PCP, acting erratically and threatening those in her Lakeland Road home in College Park.
Police who deployed to the scene saw Mr. McKoy walk the mother out of the home at gunpoint but she ran after he noticed the officer outside the house. Police said Mr. McKoy and the officer fired at each other and Mr. McKoy was likely hit. He ran and was Tasered by another officer but was still not subdued.
Mr. McKoy ran and stopped a short distance away and took his pants off. He then ran back to where the police cruisers were parked and tried to get into one of the cars. He struggled with officers, who again used a Taser to no effect, and found a police cruiser with keys in it.
Mr. McKoy fled in the stolen police cruiser and was finally arrested by eight to 10 officers after he drove the cruiser into a wall not far away. He is facing charges of attempted murder of a police officer, assault and resisting arrest, among others.
Mr. Davis said PCP provokes super-human strength and those under its influence are very hard to get under control
