PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. — Police are searching for a man accused of fatally stabbing a loss prevention employee after he was caught shoplifting at a Burlington Coat Factory in Woodbridge Saturday afternoon.

Officers were called to the store at 2700 Potomac Mills Circle to investigate a stabbing just after 2:30 p.m., Prince William County Police officials said.

Officers said workers spotted the suspect shoplifting inside the store, so two loss prevention workers confronted the man as he left the store.

"During the encounter, a struggle ensued and one of the loss prevention employees was stabbed," officials said in a news release. "The suspect then fled on foot"

The stabbing victim, 44-year-old Larry Drumgole of Rappahannock, died after being transported to the hospital.

The other worker was not injured.

The suspect was later identified, due to a previous unrelated domestic call earlier that morning, as 35-year-old Jamel Carlos Kingsbury.

Kingsbury is described as a black male, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds. He has black hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police at 703-792-6500 or Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.

This is Prince William’s third homicide of 2017.
