Two Prince George's County sheriff's
deputies were fatally shot last night when
they tried to serve an emergency psychiatric
petition at a house in the Adelphi area, law
enforcement officials said.
Someone in the house in a quiet residential
neighborhood opened fire on the deputies
about 9:30 p.m., officials said. The two, a
man and a woman, had entered the house
without incident, said Cpl. Teresa Laubach of
the sheriff's department. The man died inside
the house, and the woman was pronounced dead at
Prince George's Hospital Center after being
taken there by medical helicopter.
The victims' names had not been released early
today. Investigators were still looking for one
or two suspects who fled in a vehicle believed
to be a silver Dodge Charger.
