HYATTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — An off-duty Prince George’s County police officer is recovering after being shot in the leg outside a Hyattsville nightclub where she was working a security job.
Police say Officer Rachael Jacob was injured early Saturday morning at the Galaxy nightclub on University Boulevard. She is recovering after having surgery.
Police spokeswoman Julie Parker says the officer kicked three adults out of the club. Parker says the group then drove their car slowly past the entrance of the club, and a male suspect reached through the passenger side window and shot at Jacob.
Police have charged 32-year-old Kelly Gilliss of Beltsville with attempted first degree murder, first degree assault, reckless endangerment and using a handgun in the commission of a crime.
