Police in Maryland are continuing to search for a suspect who shot and killed an off-duty state trooper early this morning in Prince George's County.

Trooper Wesley Brown was working as a security guard at an Applebee's restaurant when he was shot around 12:40 this morning. Earlier, he had escorted a patron out of the restaurant who had refused to pay a bill. State police superintendent, colonel Terrence Sheridan, says officers do have a description of the suspect.

"African-American male, five foot six, five foot eight, 135 pounds. Last seen wearing a light blue Hugo Boss type jacket. Short hair, dark complexion, and a little bit of a beard," says Sheridan.

Sheridan says the suspect shot Brown as he was on the phone. The 24-year-old had been a trooper for a little more than three years, and had just gotten engaged to be married.
