Criminal Investigations Division Continuing Investigation (Shots Fired - Park Villas Apartments & Pegg Road)

On October 13, 2016, at 7:40 a.m. St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Maryland State Police responded to Mayfaire Lane in Lexington Park for reports of shots fired.
The preliminary investigation has revealed the suspect, Michael Vincent Moore, age 55, fired multiple rounds into an apartment door at the Park Villas Apartments (formally Mayfaire Apartments). One occupant was inside the apartment at the time the shots were fired but the victim was uninjured. Moore then fled the scene and fired rounds at a motor vehicle on Pegg Road. Moore returned to the apartment complex, where he was met by law enforcement officers and taken into custody at which time Moore assaulted Detective Michael Boyer who received minor injuries.
The driver of the motor vehicle was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for the treatment of injuries caused by the motor vehicle’s window shattering – not gun shots.
Sheriff Tim Cameron, who was on the scene, thanks, T-Bone and Heather for helping to disseminate the information to the community, Maryland State Police and Patuxent River Police for their assistance, in addition to the community for their cooperation during the investigation.
The Criminal Investigations Division is continuing the investigation. Additional information will be provided pending formal charges. 
Deputies investigating reported shots fired in the area of Mayfaire Apartments in Lexington Park and a separate incident on Pegg Road. At this time, there are no fatalities, the suspect is in custody, and the incidents are related. The investigation is on-going and additional details are forthcoming. There is no immediate threat to the public.
