The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating an attempted robbery outside of a Temple Hills home.
The homeowner, a Metropolitan Police Department officer had just arrived at his home on the 6000 block of Hope Drive, Saturday morning when he was approached by a female suspect.
The suspect was armed with a shotgun and made demands. The homeowner shot the suspect. The suspect then got into a nearby car and fled the scene.
A short time later, PGPD detectives were called to a hospital in Washington D.C. for a walk-in patient with gunshot wounds. Detectives have linked that patient to the attempted robbery in Temple Hills. She is identified as 26-year-old Ashley Tomika McCrae, of the 3500 block of 6th Street in Southeast Washington.
McCrae’s weapon and the car used in the crime have been recovered. McCrae remains hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. The homeowner was not injured. McCrae will face charges related to the attempted armed robbery.
