The Prince George’s County Police Department is mourning the loss of an off-duty police officer killed late Tuesday night in a collision.
Shortly before 11:00 pm, Officer Davon McKenzie was riding a motorcycle in the southbound lanes of I-495 at Route 202 when he was struck by another vehicle. He died of his injuries a short time later at a hospital.
“The Prince George’s County Police family is broken hearted at the loss of this young officer and only son. He was well respected and loved by his fellow officers. I, on behalf of all of us who were at the hospital and all those who couldn’t be, extend our deepest condolences to his family,” said Chief Hank Stawinski.
Officer McKenzie was assigned to the Bureau of Patrol. He joined the Prince George’s County Police Department in March of 2017. He was 24 years old.
Maryland State Police are investigating the circumstances of the fatal collision.
