DC - Manhunt underway in Washington DC for man accused of shooting his girlfriend
Montgomery County police are searching for 32-year-old Joshua Prince, who allegedly fired a shot at his girlfriend at around 7:15 a.m. in Bethesda, Md.
Authorities said Prince, who is considered armed and dangerous, is driving a black, 2004 Chevy Tahoe with Maryland license plate number 27992M5.
Two nearby schools -- Walter Johnson High School and Tilden Middle School -- have reportedly been placed on lockdown as police search the area for Prince.
Court records show that Prince's girlfriend, who was not injured in the incident, filed a restraining order against him last week, WTOP.com reports.

In January 2011, Dr. Toller rendered a report in which she found him competent to stand trial and criminally responsible. Although she acknowledged that Mr. Prince suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”) from his military experience in Iraq as a medic, Dr. Toller concluded that it played no role in his conduct: “[T]here is no evidence that [his PTSD] symptoms caused him to have significant impairment in every day function.” She opined, based on how Mr. Prince acted on the morning of the incident, that “the PTSD and the adjustment disorder did not cause him to lack substantial capacity either to appreciate the criminality of his conduct or to conform his conduct to the requirements of the law.”...
The court noted that Dr. Toller believed Mr. Prince “had a clear secondary gain to avoid incarceration and be found not criminally responsible,” and, as a result, had diagnosed him with malingering...
