PARKVILLE, Md. — We are learning more about a May 5 double shooting in Parkville, that involved an off-duty Maryland National Capital Park Police officer.

Police say Adnan Hussain had planned to meet some men to purchase a Play Station 4 they were selling on Facebook Marketplace.

Upon meeting to complete the sale in the 1100 block of Deanwood Road, the sellers allegedly robbed Hussain of the $440 he had to pay for the gaming system.

That's when Hussain reportedly pulled out a gun and shot the two suspects.

Apparently it wasn't the first time the men tried robbing someone who they met through Marketplace.

Just two days earlier, in the same block, police say another man was robbed while trying to sell three pairs of tennis shoes.

On Tuesday, police identified the suspects as 18-year-old Daevon Padgett and 19-year-old Jada Hampton. Both are being held without bail.

As for Hussain, a grand jury on Monday declined to file criminal charges against him for the shooting.

He's been a member of the Maryland National Capital Park Police for seven-years.
