PRINCE WILLIAM CO., VA —  The man accused of killing a security guard at a Burlington Coat Factory over the weekend has been arrested in D.C.

MDP arrested Jamel Carlos Kingsbury, 35, after the department was tipped off to Kingsbury’s whereabouts.

Kingsbury is wanted in connection to a deadly stabbing of a security guard at a Burlington Coat Factory in Potomac Mills in Woodbridge. On March 4, officers say they saw Kingsbury shoplifting inside the store. Soon after “two loss prevention” employees confronted the suspect, police say, during the encounter, Kingsbury stabbed one of the security guards and ran out of the store.

First responders transported 44-year-old Larry Drumgole to a nearby hospital where he later died. Police say the other employee was not injured in the struggle.

Prince William County Officers were called in around 2:30 p.m. to search the area, but they were not able to find him.

Police say earlier on Saturday, Kingsbury was involved in “domestic related call”, that’s how detectives say they were able to identify him as a suspect.

Kingsbury will remain in custody in DC pending extradition back to Virginia, police said.
