PGPD Mourns Loss of Veteran Officer Killed While Assisting Neighbor in Domestic Situation

Corporal Mujahid Ramzziddin

The Prince George’s County Police Department is mourning the loss of Corporal Mujahid Ramzziddin of our Special Operations Division’s Harbor Unit who was shot and killed while coming to the aid of a neighbor.

We are still in early stages of the investigation.  Preliminarily, we understand, Corporal Ramzziddin stepped in to help a neighbor who was being threatened by her estranged husband this morning outside of her home on Chadsey Lane in Brandywine. During that encounter, the suspect who was armed with a shotgun, shot Corporal Ramzziddin. Our officer tragically died on the scene. The female neighbor wasn’t hurt. After shooting our officer, the suspect, 37-year-old Glenn Tyndell of the 11000 block Drumsheugh Court in Largo, fled the scene in a black SUV.

A short time later,Charles County Sheriff's officers observed the suspects SUV on Berry Road near Bensville Road and began a pursuit.  That pursuit led back into Prince George’s County where our officers joined the pursuit. Tyndell bailed from his SUV on Indian Head Highway near Old Fort Road and there was an exchange of gunfire and Tyndell was fatally wounded.  No other officers were hurt. Tyndell had three open warrants for second degree assault. He was employed by Metro as a mechanic. 

Corporal Mujahid Ramzziddin leaves behind a wife and four children. He was 51 years old.  In 2006, he received a Silver Medal of Valor Award for his courage engaging an armed suspect. During his 14 years with the PGPD, Corporal Ramzziddin was assigned to District III, District IV, the WAVE Unit and our Gang Unit before his final assignment at the Harbor Unit.
Funeral arrangements for our fallen officer are still being finalized. The investigations into today's tragic events continue.
