Victims Identified in Wednesday’s Police-Involved Shooting in Takoma Park

Takoma Park Police identified the two suspects who were killed during an incident involving an off-duty Pentagon Protection Force Agency police officer. They are Dominique Williams, 32, of the 7600 block of Allendale Circle in Hyattsville; and James Lionel Johnson, 38, of the 3300 block of Princess Stephanie Court in District Heights.

On the morning of April 7, officers from the Takoma Park Police Department responded to multiple reports of shots fired in a parking lot area of the Takoma Overlook Condominiums.

When authorities arrived at the condos on the 7000 block of New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park shortly after 5 a.m., they were approached by the off-duty officer who said he observed what he thought was a car being broken into. The officer said that the suspects failed to follow his direction and attempted to flee in a vehicle. That’s when the officer discharged his service weapon, according to a press release.

Takoma Police did not release more information, noting, “We understand there is tremendous public interest in this case. We ask that the public remain patient as we fully investigate this incident. We continue to work closely with the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office to review and investigate this case.”
