BRANDYWINE, Md. – Court records say the man who fatally shot a Maryland police officer earlier this week had the court ordered to give up his guns at least three times in the last five years.
The Washington Post reports three different judges ordered Glenn Tyndell to “immediately surrender all firearms” after they found his wife, ex-wife and child protection is required. Prince George ‘s County Sheriff’ s Col. Darrin C. Palmer says Tyndell had told delegates he would himself on Tuesday. He didn’t show up.
Prince George’s County police says the 37-year-old Tyndell shot Cpl. Mujahid Ramzziddin five times with a shotgun Wednesday in the off-duty officer tried to intervene in a dispute between Tyndell and his wife. Tyndell then fled before they fatally shot by officers Luke Allen and Channing Reed, which have been place on paid leave.
