Kelvin Poke, mentioned this morning as escaping from Laurel Hospital, managed to carjack two different people today, then get into a shootout with Prince George’s County Police before being taken back into custody. Poke, seen here in his mugshot, was incarcerated for multiple violent crimes, including kidnapping and carjacking, for a term of 40 years in jail.
It’s not clear if he was reapprended alive and wounded, as reported by WTOP and Washington Post, or if he was killed the in the shootout, per CNN. Either way, our hearts go out to the two people who got carjacked by an escaped prisoner who managed to fake his way into a hospital claiming “chest pains”. Both will pull through, but still, man, that’s a shitty way to start your year.
