An Oxon Hill man will spend the next 35 years in prison for a 2010 police-involved shooting.

Trevelyn Terrell Hinton, 28, was sentenced June 1.

Court documents state that on November 26, 2010, an officer near Sligo Creek Parkway and Houston Avenue in Takoma Park attempted to stop a speeding vehicle in the area.

Hinton didn't stop, beginning a vehicle pursuit which ended in the parking lot of East Spring Elementary School when Hinton crashed into a pole.

The suspect then ran to an apartment complex parking lot near the school.

Police spokeswoman Catherine Plevy says at some point, Hinton pulled out a gun and gunfire was exchanged.

Neither was hit.

As he got to the side of an apartment building, Plevy says, Hinton grabbed a man coming out of the building and "held him as a shield."

The officer told Hinton to let the man go, which he did. He was then taken into custody.

Hinton was charged with attempted voluntary manslaughter, first degree assault, false imprisonment, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony and possession of a handgun by a prohibited person.
