The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER -

The six po­lice of­fi­cers who con­fronted and gunned down a rob­ber Fri­day morn­ing out­side a Cap­i­tal One bank branch in Takoma Park were iden­ti­fied Satur­day, but the rob­ber was not.

Mont­gomery County po­lice said three of­fi­cers who sur­rounded the rob­ber, as he emerged from the bank with a hostage at gun­point, were from the Takoma Park po­lice: Act­ing Lt. Tyrone Colling­ton Sr., a 12-year vet­eran and com­man­der of the sup­port ser­vices di­vi­sion; Cpl. Thomas E. Black, a five-year vet­eran, and Pri­vate David M. Quante Jr., a five-year vet­eran. Black and Quante are pa­trol of­fi­cers.

The other of­fi­cers were from the Prince Ge­orge’s County po­lice: Act­ing Sgt. Rob­bie Love­day, a 13year vet­eran; Cpl. Bryan Me­d­ina, an eight-year vet­eran; and Of­fi­cer Osiris Lopez Jr., a five-year vet­eran. All are as­signed to the Hy­attsville district sta­tion.

The of­fi­cers fired af­ter the hostage fled from the gun­man and he fol­lowed with his gun ex­tended, video of the event showed. One Prince Ge­orge’s of­fi­cer was grazed dur­ing the shoot­ing.

All six of­fi­cers were placed on ad­min­is­tra­tive leave pend­ing the out­come of crim­i­nal and in­ter­nal ad­min­is­tra­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
