GU Hospital employee surrenders self to police after shooting

Joshua Prince, a suspect who allegedly fired a rifle at his ex-girlfriend in a Bethesda parking garage, surrendered himself to Pennsylvania State Police on Tuesday.

According to WTOP, the unnamed victim’s affidavit reveals that Prince is an employee of Georgetown University Hospital. (GU Hospital spokesperson Marianne Worley has not yet commented on the story.)

Early Tuesday morning, as his ex-girlfriend walked to her car, Prince allegedly fired a shot from a “high-powered rifle” at her. The couple has recently broke up; Prince’s ex-girlfriend had previously filed a protection order against him.

Prince’s surrender came after a day-long manhunt that locked down schools in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

12 p.m. update: In an e-mail to Vox, Worley directed our questions to the Montgomery County Police Department.
