PGPD Investigates Non-Fatal Shooting in Brandywine

The Prince George's County Police Department is investigating a double non-fatal shooting in Brandywine.

On August 23, 2013, at about 11:20 pm, patrol officers were called to the 14000 block of Brandywine Road for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, patrol officers found two female victims, ages 14 and 15, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

The preliminary investigation suggests the victims were attending a party at a volunteer firehouse in Brandywine. For reasons which remain unclear, several juveniles began fighting inside the party. The fight spilled outside, where someone began firing a handgun. Both victims, who detectives believe were not involved in the fight, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information on this case or the suspect is urged to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Regional Investigation Division – Southern Region at 301-749-5064. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call CRIME SOLVERS at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), text “PGPD plus your message” to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone or go to and submit a tip online.
