    The Prince George’s County Police Department says it is hoping two Good Samaritans come forward who assisted with a traffic accident that led to a Takoma Pak Police-involved shooting.

    News4 previously reported that a male suspect stabbed a man at the Sunoco Gas Station on New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park, Md on Saturday, before fleeing the scene.  Investigators said the suspect eventually collided with three other cars and flipped over at Riggs and Metzerot Road in neighboring Prince George’s County.  

    Police say a black female stopped to assist the drivers involved in the crash.  The suspect then attempted to carjack the woman’s red BMW before a Hispanic male intervened.

    Police said a female Takoma Park Police officer then arrived and struggled to arrest the suspect.  A male officer shot at the suspect multiple times after the suspect refused to stop assaulting the female officer.  The suspect was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    Police have now identified the deceased suspect as Keston David Lewis, 19, from the 700 block of Linden Oak Place in Odenton, Md.

    Police are asking the Good Samaritans to call (301) 772-4925.
