MD: Mount Rainier police officer, indicted

The slime should not still have been in the police after his previous behavior. No doubt his skin color protected him

A grand jury indicted a Mount Rainier police officer on multiple charges, including attempted murder and sexual offense, in connection with a July shooting in Capitol Heights.

27-year-old Gene Gillette, a 3 and ½ year veteran with the police, faces 12 counts of attempted second-degree murder, attempted voluntary manslaughter and multiple counts of assault and sexual offenses. He is expected to appear in court Wednesday for a bond hearing.

"We don't take lightly our responsibility to enforce the law - even against a law enforcer," Angela Alsobrooks, the State's Attorney for Prince George's County, said in a statement. "No one is above the law."

Sources tell ABC7 that on July 2, the victim in the shooting, a 20-year-old male, was lured over to Gillete's residence when he was told there would be girls there to shoot a pornographic film.

Once the victim arrived, he found no girls at the residence. Instead, sources say, Gillette wanted him to perform sexual acts with him. When the victim tried to flee in Gillette's personal car, the officer opened fire, hitting him in the torso.

"I woke up hearing some screaming," Bryien Gray, Gillette's neighbor, said. "Another gunshot...and the guy hits the ground."

Gillette originally said that he had shot the victim in self-defense while he was being carjacked.

He faces life in prison if convicted on all counts.

Mt. Rainier Police Chief Mike Scott says that Gillette was a two-time Officer of the Year, earning the honor in 2009 and 2010. He called him a "very proactive" cop and said he was very disappointed.

However, a Northeast D.C. resident says she was harassed two years ago when Gillette arrested her. She took video of the incident with her cell phone.

Charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest against her were later dropped.

Gillette has been suspended without pay.
