Police say Jeremiah Pearson, 25, fired at Prince George's County officers as they forced their way through a heavy steel door around 5 a.m. Luckily, Pearson missed and shot the door.

Police believe Pearson's gun then jammed, preventing him from firing more rounds. He then ran to the rear of the home and threw the gun out the window.

Officers removed a .22 caliber handgun, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia from the home.

Pearson  faces several attempted murder charges.
