The pursuit led back towards Bowie and after a brief foot pursuit, the suspect was apprehended and is now in Prince George's County Police custody.

The son of the victim identified him to WDCW as Ronald Pinkney Sr., but police have not released his identity.

Police confirm the man that they have in custody is the stepson of the victim and that the two had a longstanding domestic history including disputes both verbal and physical.

"He just wanted to get him some help," says Ronald Pinkney Jr., the victim's son. " It's sad on both ends, like I know my stepbrother's about to spend the rest of his life in jail."

Pinkney's family says he was a 'great man to everybody' and had friends almost anywhere they went.

"He was one of the funniest men I've ever met at the same time one of the greatest grandfathers, father, mentor," says Pinkney's grandson.

Prince George's County Police say charges are pending against the suspect.
