LA PLATA, Md. (AP) — The son of a Maryland police officer was found shot to death in the driveway of a home, authorities said Wednesday.

Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, said Bradley Alan Brown, 17, was shot at approximately 7 p.m. in the Bryans Road area of the county, news sources reported. Emergency personnel pronounced Brown dead at the scene.

Brown was the son of a Prince George's County officer, a spokeswoman for the Washington, D.C., area-department confirmed. The officer's name wasn't released.

WTOP-FM reported that a spokeswoman for Charles County Public Schools identified Brown in an email on Wednesday, saying he was enrolled in a criminal justice program and ran cross country for four years.
