A Prince George’s County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a 39-year-old man last Wednesday night in Riverdale Heights.

The deputy went to the 6300 block of 63rd Avenue around 7:30 p.m. to serve a temporary peace order, according to Capt. Nancy Ridgely of the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office. A woman allowed the officer inside the house, and once the deputy entered, a man appeared from the rear of the home displaying a firearm. The deputy discharged his weapon striking the suspect.

The man was transported to a local trauma center where he was pronounced dead, Ridgely said.

The deputy is a 10-year veteran of the sheriff’s department and was not injured, Ridgely added.

A neighbor told The Sentinel that the woman who allowed the deputy into the house was the mother of the man shot.

A peace order typically involves two disputing parties who are not related to each other. Investigators say it is too early to know the nature of the dispute or for whom the peace order was intended.
