Maryland Man Who Shot and Wounded 2 Officers Will Not Be Charged

September 21, 2018  | 

A man who shot and wounded two Prince George's County, MD, police officers will not be charged because he was not the man they were after—he was in fact, under the impression that he was defending himself from a home invasion, according to Fox45 News.

Chief Henry Stawinski said in a Thursday news conference that the man was a "law-abiding, hardworking citizen" who did not know that it was police officers attempting to enter his residence.

Stawinski said that the investigation led the agency to the wrong address, but "we did not serve a search warrant at the wrong address," Stawinski said.

An investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
