Mourning a young officer

The 24-year-old officer was gunned down in cold blood after working his part-time security job

PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — Young, ambitious and dedicated to helping young people, Maryland State Trooper Wesley Brown had a lot going for him at age 24.

All that, however, was taken from him when he was viciously ambushed in the early morning hours after working his part-time security job at Applebee's restaurant in Prince George's County, Md. Earlier in the evening, he had escorted out a disorderly man who was refusing to pay his bill. When Mr. Brown left the restaurant at the end of his shift and readied to depart in his marked cruiser, which was visibly stationed outside the restaurant, he was gunned down in cold blood, with no chance to react or return fire.
