The Maryland police officer killed Sunday outside the Prince George’s County Police headquarters died from friendly fire.
Three brothers have been arrested in connection to Jacai Colson’s death, but a press conference Monday revealed Colson was killed as his fellow officers responded to the "unprovoked" shootout.
"Now, it’s my sad duty to have to share with you that circumstantially we believe the fired round that led to Detective Colson’s death was fired by one of his fellow Prince George’s County officers reacting to this," police Chief Hank Stawinski said.
