Detectives Investigating Domestic-Related Murder / Suicide on Fallen Timber Way

On April 5 at 8:07 p.m., officers responded to the 5000 block of Fallen Timber Way in Indian Head for the report of a shooting. A preliminary investigation revealed a husband and wife were involved in an argument inside their house when the male shot his wife and then himself. The couple’s young adult son, who was in his bedroom, heard the argument followed by the shots. He then discovered his parents with gunshot wounds and immediately called 911.

The woman, Brenda Jenette Harrison-Bumbray, 50, was pronounced deceased on the scene. The male, Jose Ramon Bumbray, 46, was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Jose Bumbray was a police officer with the United States Park Police and it appears he used his agency-issued firearm.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call Detective J. Elliott at (301) 609-6515. Questions relating to Mr. Bumbray’s occupation should be directed to the US Park Police at (202) 619-7266.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
