Man Arrested in Shooting of Ice Cream Truck Driver

A man has been arrested in connection to the Fourth of July shooting of an ice cream truck driver in Edmonston, Maryland, police say.

Two gunmen shot the driver nine times during an attempted robbery on the property of Berliner Foods wholesale ice cream distributor, police said. The victim survived his injuries.

Prince George's County police said 22-year-old Demetrice Littles, of Hyattsville, was arrested when he visited his parole officer. It is not known what Littles has been charged with.

Police are still searching for a second suspect.

Other ice cream truck drivers at the scene after the shooting told News4 that they often worried about their safety at the lot, where drivers pay about $50 per week to store their vans when they are not in use.

Anyone with more information is asked to call police at (301) 699-2601.
