PRINCE GEORGE'S CO., Md. - The State's Attorney's Office says the man accused of killing a police Corporal was scheduled to be arrested by sheriff's deputies in a "warrant sweep" Wednesday evening, hours after the shooting.
Glenn Tyndell, 37, is accused of shooting Mujahid Ramzziddin, 51, five times outside a home on Chadsey Lane, then leading police on a pursuit that ended in his shooting death.
Police say Tyndell's estranged wife showed up at Corporal Ramzziddin's home to ask for help because she was being threatened by Tyndell.
State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks says Tyndell has been on the Sheriff's Office radar since January 20th, when his wife filed theft charges against him.
The documents explain that Tyndell left with her car key, tax return documents, and a briefcase of other important documents including her passport, social security cards, and life insurance policy.
The documents also say that Tyndell's wife filed a protective order against him the same day.
"From that date forward, the Sheriff’s Office was constantly trying to arrest him, he apparently was in another county, they conducted surveillance in front of the home of relatives to try to apprehend him," says Alsobrooks.
She says last week, on February 14th and 15th, Tyndell's wife filed assault charges against him.
Sheriff's deputies were able to reach Tyndell by phone the following weekend, and he said he would turn himself in on Tuesday the 20th, but he never showed up.
Alsobrooks says the Sheriff's Office scheduled a "warrant sweep" for Wednesday night, which is a routine matter that they do from time to time.
"They were actively pursuing him and trying to apprehend him and unfortunately these events occurred before they could arrest him," she says.
Alsobrooks says they also know of a protective order, filed against Tyndell by his ex-wife, back in July of 2017.
Prince George's County Police announced on Thursday that the officers who discharged their duty weapons, fatally striking Tyndell, are POFC Luke Allen and POFC Channing Reed.
POFC Allen is an eight year veteran and POFC Reed is a six year veteran of the department.
Police say both are assigned to the Bureau of Patrol. They are on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Out of respect for Corporal Ramzziddin's devout Muslim faith, police say they are deterring from the normal routine for a line of duty death and following the Muslim tradition and his family's wishes for his funeral.
Police say they will be holding a celebration of life to follow the service at the FOP Lodge 89 at 3 p.m.
