Community mourns fallen PGPD officer; neighbors say suspect had violent past

BRANDYWINE, Md.-- A community of neighbors and law enforcement have  been left  heartbroken after off-duty Prince George's County Police Corporal Mujahid Ramzziddin, was shot and killed this morning, after responding to a domestic dispute.

“I am shocked, but not that much.”, said a neighbor who wishes to remain anonymous.

She, like many others in the neighborhood, share the same sentiment.
According to neighbors, the suspect, 37-year-oldt Glenn Tyndell, also dead,
was known for having a violent temper.

“He gets into a lot of altercations with his wife and in the past he has a prior history of domestic violence.”, said neighbor, Earline Harris.

Stephanie Harrison Colbert lives within an earshot of the shooting.
She said, “I heard three gunshots and then there was a pause, and then I heard additional gunshots and I would say about 10 or 15 minutes later, I started hearing all these sirens, so I knew something was tragically wrong.”

Corporal Ramzziddin was a 14 year veteran of the Prince George’s County Police Department and leaves behind four kids and a wife.

Wednesday afternoon, officers and other emergency personnel could be seen saluting his memory on this overpass.

During a press conference, Prince George’s County Executive, Rushern Baker spoke to Corporal Ramzziddin’s commitment to serve.

“This is a sad day for us in Prince George’s County. We’re going to greive the loss of this talented young man, but it is also a proud day for us in Prince George’s County because he’s an example of the men and women who put on this uniform each and everyday and go out there and serve. That’s the caliber of the quality that we have in this county.”, said Baker.

The Ferris wheel at the National Harbour has also been lit up in blue to honor Corporal Ramzzidin.
Funeral arrangements are still being finalized at this time.
