On Thursday, Chief Stawinski provided an update in the investigation into the execution of a search warrant that resulted in the wounding of two Prince George’s County Police officers. One of the two wounded PGPD officers was treated and released from the hospital. The second officer remains hospitalized and is undergoing treatment for an injury to the arm and face. Both of the officers are assigned to the Special Operations Division.
In a separate update, the Internal Affairs Division’s Special Investigation Response Team (SIRT) is investigating the discharge of one officer’s weapon during the execution of the search warrant, as discussed by the Chief. The officer, Corporal Daniel Siculietano, fired one time after the resident shot and wounded the two officers as the team of officers was making entry into the home. No one was hit by the shot fired from Siculietano’s weapon. He is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation which is standard procedure. He has been with the department for seven years and is currently assigned to our Special Operations Division. All cases involving officers discharging their weapons are reviewed by the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office.
As Chief Stawinski explained earlier, upon conferring with the State’s Attorney, no charges will be filed against the resident in this case.
The entire incident remains under investigation.
