A home invasion left a suspect dead and the home’s occupant in the hospital.

Prince George’s County Police are still investigating, but say at around 12:30 p.m., two suspects entered a home in the 12600 block of Lusby Lane in Brandywine and then gunshots rang out. One of the suspects was shot and killed. The other one ran away. One of the home’s occupants suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The neighborhood is quiet and tucked away. It’s close to open fields and almost seems like a forgotten part of Prince George’s County. Longtime resident William Mouling Sr. says things aren’t the way they used to be.

“Twenty years ago when I moved here nobody knew where Brandywine was. Now we’ve got new developments, new communities, new kids and it’s growing by leaps and bounds,” Mouling said.

Mouling said he was shocked to hear someone lost their life in his neighborhood.

“I was set back when I came into my community today and saw the Prince George’s County Police officers and the tape surrounding this home it just set me back.”

Even though police aren’t releasing any names just yet, Mouling is relieved to learn it wasn’t the home’s occupant who was killed.

“They have been here for a very long time. I watched their kids grow up in that house. I’m just glad it wasn’t any of the kids.”
