RIVERDALE PARK, Md. — Editor's Note: The video above is from Nov. 10. 

A 20-year-old Maryland man was arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly shooting and injuring a Riverdale Park Police officer Monday night, as well as shooting at a Greenbelt Police officer, according to the Prince George's County Police Department. Josue Albarran-Dominguez, of Riverdale, is charged with assault, gun offenses and other related charges.

According to PGPD's initial investigation, a Riverdale Park Police officer spotted a vehicle suspected of being involved in a Halloween shooting at 9:45 p.m. Monday. The officer attempted to stop the car in the area of Riverdale Road and 58th Avenue in Riverdale Park, but the driver sped off. The officer followed, and the car chase ended in the 4900 block of East-West Highway when both the driver and passenger bailed out of the car and ran away. 

Police say Albarran-Dominguez shot the Riverdale officer, and also shot at a Greenbelt officer, hitting the officer's car instead. The Riverdale officer fired back during the chase, while the Greenbelt officer did not fire his gun.

The Riverdale Park Police officer was treated for injuries at a local hospital and released. The Greenbelt officer was not injured. 

Albarran-Dominguez was arrested by a Bladensburg Police Officer at 2 a.m. Wednesday in the area of 57th Avenue and Emerson Street. Police say he again attempted to run away, but was caught after a short chase. They also said he had a gun when he was arrested. 

Albarran-Dominguez is being held without bond in the custody of the Department of Corrections, according to PGPD. 

A second suspect still has not been apprehended, police said.
