The University of Maryland Police Department Criminal Investigations unit arrested Jamal Ulysses Green on Sept. 6. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery, among other felonies, for an alleged robbery and shooting of a security guard in College Park, Md.
According to police, authorities responded earlier that day to a shooting around 1:12 a.m. at the College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center on the University of Maryland’s University College campus in Adelphi, Md. Police said an unarmed security officer was shot during a robbery. Three safes were taken but were later recovered along with the alleged handgun.
“When the security officer was shot he was listed in critical condition,” Maj. Marc Limanski of the University of Maryland Police Department told the AFRO. “We tried to find out his status; the hospital states he is recovering.”
Limanski said Green, 24, was taken to the Detention Center in Upper Marlboro, Md. after his arrest. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 4. Detectives are also looking for a second suspect involved in the robbery and are asking for the public’s help. The unidentified suspect was described as skinny in build, wearing a black ski mask, black hoodie, a blue long-sleeved shirt, yellow or light colored gloves, and armed with a handgun.
