SILVER SPRING, MD — Maryland Attorney General's Office on Thursday released its Independent Investigations Division report of last December's officer-involved fatal shooting of Osman Sesay in Silver Spring.

The report makes no recommendations as to whether any of the officers involved in Sesay's death should or should not be charged.

An off-duty MCPD officer was alerted at 4:25 a.m., on Dec. 29, 2021, to a shooting in the 900 block of Bonifant Street in Silver Spring. The off-duty officer relayed a description of the suspect's car to on-duty officers who were responding to the scene, according to police.

A few minutes later, the officer stopped a vehicle matching the description of the suspect's car in the area of Wayne Avenue and Dartmouth Avenue in Silver Spring.

Against the officers' orders, Sesay got out of his car and pointed a handgun at them, according to police. Officers Lenhart, Dorsey, Tejada, and Kessler all fired at Sesay, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

After concluding its investigation on May 16, 2022, the IID forwarded its report to the Howard County State's Attorney's Office. Howard and Montgomery counties have an agreement to investigate police-involved fatal shootings that happen in each other's jurisdictions.

On June 9, the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office notified Montgomery County that it was not going to prosecute this case.
