second mysterious security worker wacked in Prince George’s


Looks like they may have stumbled on to the second 911 event or the plan for the release of the influenza virus.

An Oxon Hill man who worked with sensitive national security information was fatally shot Wednesday evening as he sat in his car at a stop light near his home, according to police, family members and coworkers.

Sean Nicholas Green, 31, had stopped at a red light at about 5:31 p.m. when a man approached his car and fired several shots into the driver’s side window of his black Cadillac Deville, police and family members said.

Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a spokesman for Prince George’s County police, said detectives do not have a suspect and are still working to establish a motive for the killing. “It doesn’t appear to be a carjacking, he was sitting at the light, he wasn’t the only car there — it’s weird stuff, a mystery right now,” Copeland said.

Other motorists who were stopped at the intersection of Virginia Lane and Saint Barnabas Road witnessed the shooting but were able to provide only vague descriptions of the gunman, who quickly fled the scene, Copeland said.

Stephen I. Green Jr., the victim’s older brother, said the shooting occurred about the time his brother usually left his apartment in the 2700 block of Alice Avenue to go workout at a nearby gym.

Sean Green lived alone, had never been married and had passed a security background check to begin working at the National Counterterrorism Center in Northern Virginia about two years, according to his brother and a supervisor at the center. He worked in information technology and handled computers with sensitive national security information, the supervisor said.

“We’re all just in shock right now. This is a great loss, not just to our family but to the whole world,” Stephen I. Green Jr. said last night as he and others gathered at his parents’ home in Capitol Heights. “My brother came from a very loving and supportive family. He was a son, a brother, a nephew, a wonderful uncle — a positive member of society.”

The slaying is the second mysterious killing of a security worker in Prince George’s in recent months. In August, Kanika Powell, a security specialist at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory was gunned down by someone waiting near her doorstep. Five days before she was killed, police said an impostor had knocked on her door claiming to be an FBI agent. Police said there’s no indication the two killings are connected.

Anyone with information about either crime is asked to call the county homicide detectives at 301-772-4925. Anonymous calls can be placed to 866-411-TIPS.
