ATTEMPTED MURDER/SUICIDE: Charles County Sheriff's detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division are investigating a shooting that occurred on July 17 in which a man and a woman were seriously injured. At 5:09 a.m., officers received a call for an assault in progress in the 3500 block of Seagrape Court in Waldorf. The female caller indicated her son was arguing with his stepfather (her husband). Prior to police arrival, the suspect pulled a handgun and fired multiple shots, wounding his mother and stepfather. Both victims were able to flee from the house but collapsed in the street just outside their home. Officers and emergency medical personnel swiftly moved the victims to safety and both victims were flown to an area hospital.
In the meantime, officers were told the shooter was possibly still inside the house. Patrol officers quickly established a perimeter and the CCSO Emergency Services Team (EST) and a hostage negotiator responded. They attempted to make contact with anyone inside but to no avail. At approximately 9:15 a.m., EST officers made entry inside the house and discovered the suspect, Shea Camya Proctor, 33, of that address, deceased with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A handgun was recovered as well. Proctor was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy. At this point, it is not immediately clear what prompted the argument and detectives are interviewing family and friends to gather additional information. The investigation is continuing.
