WALDORF, Md. (WJZ) — Police in southern Maryland are still looking into what caused a man to shoot his mom and stepfather.
Mike Schuh reports neighbors called police after hearing the man argue with his stepfather.
Charles County cops, not knowing if the suspect was alive and armed, used an armored truck to force their way into the home where the shooting happened.
Once inside, they found the body of Shea Camya Proctor, 33. Police believe he killed himself after wounding his mother, Janice Proctor Wills, and stepfather Jeff Wills with a handgun.
His Myspace page shows the family together in happier times.
“They found a man and a woman,” said Dianne Richardson, Charles County Sheriff’s Department.
Richardson says there was an argument, then the shots. Proctor’s mother and stepfather got outside and collapsed in the street. They are currently hospitalized.
“We saw a lot of police officers,” said a neighbor.
Neighbors say the stepfather is a well-liked truck mechanic who does landscaping on the side.
“Great person, great personality. Wonderful family,” said the neighbor.
Proctor calls himself “mellow” and “always real,” though neighbors rarely saw him and did not think he was employed.
“When you don’t see him and they don’t come out of the house, something’s wrong,” said another neighbor.
Police don’t know or aren’t saying what the argument was about that preceded the shooting.
