On October 18 at 1:40 a.m., officers responded to St. Charles Parkway at Gallery Place for the report of a motor vehicle crash. Upon arrival, a 2015 Honda Pilot was found unoccupied which had left the roadway and struck several trees. The vehicle was destroyed, and witnesses reported the driver leaving the scene on foot with at least one child with him.

While officers were canvassing the area looking for the occupants, a call was received for the 2900 block of Jones Court for an injured child. Upon arrival at that location, three children, ages 6, 9, and 12, were found to be injured as a result of the car crash on St. Charles Parkway. The driver had again fled the scene on foot. All three children were flown to Children’s National Medical Center with injuries that were later determined to be non-life-threatening.

While on scene, officers heard the sound of gunshots. Officers canvassed the area but did not locate any suspects or the source of the gunfire. While responding to the report of the gunshots, PFC V. Warker located the driver of the hit and run vehicle. Adrian Gerard Lockley, 31 of Waldorf, was charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving. The investigation is ongoing.
