They were taken to an area hospital where they are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Interim Chief Hector Velez said getting the call that three officers were shot were his "worst nightmare" while speaking at a press conference outside of the hospital.

"They were ambused," Velez said when describing the incident. He said the officers were saved by the bullet-resistant vests they were wearing. 

Velez said the officers are doing well and in good spirits. 

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan offered his sympathies on Twitter: "We are all extending our prayers to the three officers shot tonight in Prince George’s County. @MDSP has offered its full support for the investigation."
