It is with heavy hearts that the Metropolitan Police Department announces that MPD Detective
Timothy Francis, most recently assigned to the Homicide Unit’s Natural Squad, tragically passed
away. Francis was shot and killed in a domestic-related homicide yesterday in Charles County,
Maryland. The suspect was also found deceased at the scene. This case is currently under
investigation by the Charles County Sheriff’s Office. Francis had 20 years of dedicated service
with the Metropolitan Police Department.

“Mourning the tragic loss of our colleague and friend is extremely difficult,” said Chief Peter
Newsham.”Detective Francis spent two decades protecting the community from violence, and to
learn that he was the victim of a homicide is heartbreaking.”
