A Prince George’s County grand jury is hearing testimony in the off-duty gun-related case involving veteran Metropolitan Police Department Officer, according to law enforcement sources with knowledge of the case.

The grand jury is expected to complete its work within several weeks, sources said, indicating that charges against Christopher P. Whitehouse may be part of a larger probe.

A former sergeant who was demoted after previous charges of off-duty gun use, Mr. Whitehouse is under a peace order to stay away from a female friend who in court papers said he grabbed her around her neck and pointed a gun underneath her chin.

He faces charges of assault and reckless endangerment, his police powers have been revoked, and he must participate in an alcohol program, court records state.
