CALLS FOR HELP FROM TYNDELL’S WIFE CAME IN THE DAYS BEFORE CPL. MUJAHID RAMZZIDDIN WAS KILLED
Prince George’s County Police Surrounded Gunman One Week Before Officer’s Murder
From NBC 4 Washington:
The man who shot and killed a Prince George’s County police officer who was trying to help a neighbor during a domestic situation was surrounded by police at his home just days before, according to court documents.
Glenn Tyndell’s estranged wife filed charges against him on Feb. 20, two days before police say Tyndell fatally shot Cpl. Mujahid Ramzziddin. In the documents, she says police surrounded their home in Brandywine, Maryland, on Feb. 15, but left after trying for two hours to get him out of the house.
Tyndell’s wife said in the police report that about 12:15 a.m. she came home after filing assault charges against Tyndell and saw him at the door armed with a shotgun. After explaining to him that he was scaring their two children and persuading him to let her go, she left with the kids and went to the neighborhood’s clubhouse down the street to call 911.
She said in the report that six officers responded and were outside of her home trying to get her husband to come out. She said that after two hours, police returned to her at the neighborhood clubhouse where she was waiting.
“After two hours they return to me [at] the clubhouse and said he didn’t come out we’ll try again another time,” she wrote in the report.
A few days later, Tyndell, 37, shot Ramzziddin multiple times as the officer tried to help Tyndell’s estranged wife. Tyndell died hours later after exchanging gunfire with officers.
Tyndell had three open warrants for assault. Court records show he was arrested for violating a protective order in March 2013 and arrested for assault in September 2010.
The charging documents filed by Joanne Tyndell on Jan. 21, 2018 and again on Feb. 15, 2018, following Glenn Tyndell appearing with a gun at her home.
Glenn Tyndell subsequently murdered Cpl. Mujahid Ramzziddin on Feb. 22, 2018:
