Interim Police Chief Hector Velez said officers arrived with the arrest warrant, but the suspect ran out the back of the apartment.
Velez said an officer, who knew the suspect to be armed and dangerous, was waiting behind the apartment and fired at the suspect’s direction.
The shot caused the suspect to run back into the apartment where police made the arrest.
Velez said no one was hurt during the arrest, and the shooting is under investigation. The identity of the suspect was not revealed.
It was the second shooting incident involving a Prince George’s County in two consecutive days. An officer shot and injured a man outside a liquor store on New Hampshire Avenue Sunday night.
