College Park police: Fleeing man fired on officer

Police have made an arrest in an officer-involved shooting incident in College Park on Friday, Channel 2 Action News reported. No one was injured.

Details were sketchy, but police said they were called to Lamont Drive because of a verbal argument and pursued Taveous Albadee, who ran off when officers arrived.

A College Park police officer pursued Albadee, who allegedly pulled a gun from his waistband and fired at him. Nobody was hit, Channel 2 reported.

An FBI agent arrived with a police dog, which located the officer’s discharged shell casing and Albadee’s gun and was searching for the gun’s magazine, which would show if a round had been discharged.

College Park Police Chief Keith Meadows told Channel 2 that the officer was “shaken up” and would get three days off to recover. Albadee faces various charges, including aggravated assault on a police officer.
