Police identify security officer killed at nightclub http://www.privateofficer.com
Authorities released the name of the security officer who was shot and killed Aug. 28 while working the door at a Hyattsville-area nightclub, according to Prince George’s County Police.
Gregory Barron, Jr., 33, of the 5700 block of Queens Chapel Road in Hyattsville was taken to a local hospital after police found him outside of the Mustang nightclub with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body, police spokesman Mike Rodriguez said. He was later pronounced dead.
Police are still unsure as to what led to the shooting on the 2400 block of Chillum Road, which is just outside of Hyattsville city limits.
Police responded to the club after someone called 911 and reported gunshots were heard at 11:50 p.m. and someone Rodriguez said. When officers arrived, they found one person shot and believe two people may have been involved in the shooting.
“The only thing we have right now is possibly an altercation ensued after one of the suspects was going to be pat down,” Rodriguez said. “Possibly the suspect had a problem with being pat down, maybe because had a gun or something.”
Police did not know if the security officer worked for a contract company or as an employee of the nightclub and they did not reveal if he was armed or not.
