Prince George’s County police ID 2 men shot, killed at Accokeek car meetup

Authorities have identified the two men killed in a late-night shooting at a car meetup in Prince George’s County.

Investigators say 48-year-old Sheldon N. Proctor and 55-year-old Patrick L. Savoy were found suffering from gunshot wounds when officers arrived on the scene in the 7000 block of Berry Road in Accokeek around 11:45 p.m. on Thursday.

Police say Proctor and Savoy died at the scene. A third man transported himself to a nearby hospital where he is in stable condition and is being treated for gunshot wounds.

FOX 5's Stephanie Ramirez was at the scene Friday and said family members of the two men told her the two were participating in a car meetup in the parking lot of the Monokeek Village Center when they were shot.

Unlike car meet-ups that have plagued some D.C. area neighborhoods by taking over intersections and stopping traffic, the family told Ramirez that this gathering was more like a vehicle showcase.

Proctor's sister, Tammala Swann, told Ramirez that her brother was in his 40s and rode on a motorized scooter due to a disability. 

"He had the prettiest smile, a very handsome, handsome guy," Swann said. "And he loved the world, and he loved everybody. Anybody that you ask, they would tell you - they wouldn't have a beef with him because he was such a good guy. This senseless killing has got to stop."

One man said he watched Proctor grow up.

"I knew his dad, his mom. I feel so sorry for the family, because his father just lost his wife. He just lost his wife, his mother, and now his son’s gone. Just so sad," he said. "This morning, I got up. Getting ready to go to work and watching the news, and thinking ‘No, can’t be.’ God bless them all. I pray that the culprits get caught. Senseless."

Another woman identified herself as Savoy’s cousin. She did not want to speak on camera, but she told FOX 5, her cousin was a family man. 

Other friends who stopped by to pay their respects said Savoy was "the life of the party." She said there was a vigil for another cousin of theirs Thursday night after the car meetup.

Ramirez says family told her Savoy was in his 60s.

It is unclear if the gathering was sanctioned. A $25,000 reward is being offered in connection with the case.

Detectives have not identified any suspects and motives in the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact Prince George’s County Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS, online, or using the P3 Tips app.
