Police: No sign of greater plot.
CHEVERLY, Md. – An undercover police officer was killed by his own colleagues’ fire as he responded to the ambush of his police station by a gunman with a death wish, a police chief said Monday.
While officer Jacai Colson lay mortally wounded Sunday, the gunman’s two brothers coldly recorded the firefight, Prince George’s County police chief Hank Stawinski said, angrily tapping a podium as he provided the first details of the gun battle.
The gunman had been spraying bullets, hitting cars and even an ambulance, to draw officers outside the station. Colson also responded, jumping out of an unmarked car and wearing civilian clothes without body armor, the chief said.
