Mujahid Ramzziddin

Sergeant Mujahid Ramzziddin was shot and killed at approximately 10:15 am while attempting to protect a female subject who was being attacked in a domestic violence incident in a neighborhood near the intersection of Chadds Ford Drive and Chadsey Lane.

Sergeant Ramzziddin, who was off duty and lived nearby, attempted to protect the female and confronted the man who was armed with a shotgun. The subject, who had a protective order issued against him, fatally shot Sergeant Ramzziddin before stealing his service weapon and fleeing in a vehicle.

Responding officers pursued the man approximately 10 miles before he stopped and attempted to flee into a nearby wooded area. The man was shot and killed by pursuing officers after shooting at them.

Sergeant Ramzziddin had served with the Prince George's County Police Department for 14 years and had previously served with the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, for five years. He was awarded the county’s Medal of Valor in 2006 for his courage while engaging an armed suspect. He was a veteran of the District of Columbia Air National Guard and U.S. Marine Corps.

Sergeant Ramzziddin is survived by his wife and four children.

He was posthumously promoted from the rank of Corporal to the rank of Sergeant.

First off, I would like to give my condolences to the wife and children of Sargent Ramzziddin. It is extremely hard losing a loved one, especially when its in the line of duty as a cop or military officer. With regards to the situation surrounding his death, domestic violence is a troubling thing. As someone who has suffered from domestic violence, I truly appreciate people like Sargent Ramzziddin. Reading his story brought up a few tears and reminded me of how selfless some people can be. He's a perfect example of what an officer should be in terms of respect and dignity. I myself am going to school to be a forensic scientist. But before i do that I wish to join the police force so i can have a look into being a police officer and the training and respect that goes with that. One very important quote i live by is this: if we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable. That is one mission i plan to have when i become a cop. Again I thank Sargent Ramzziddin for his service to his community and my condolences to the family.
