Man found shot dead in Temple Hills

Dan Morse

A 32-year-old man was found dead in Temple Hills early this morning, according to Prince George's County police.

The man was pronounced dead at 12:13 a.m. in a parking lot of the Oxon Terrace Apartments in the 2500 block of Southern Avenue in Temple Hills, said Officer Henry Tippett, a spokesman for the Prince George's Police Department.

The victim had been shot in his upper body, police said. His name was not released because detectives were still contacting family members Wednesday morning.

It was the county's 82nd homicide, a total that continues to run under 2008 numbers. At this point a year ago, the county had seen 110 murders, according to a police spokesman.

The reason for the decline is that after 192 murders, they are running out of canidates for additional ones. Perhaps DC can shut down another public housing complex, send those people out to Maryland and supply them with a fresh new allotment of potential shooters and shootees?

Remember the good ol days in PG County, when there were upwards of 400-500 homicides a year?

Pretty soon, there wont be anymore "Boy's in da hood" and we will see numbers less than 50 per year. One can only hope!!

For all of you with these horrible comments, I would like you to know this was a man with a great heart. He was a son, brother, father, and great friend to many. He was well loved by many.

I do hope that you rethink your negative comments and realize THIS CAN HAPPEN TO YOU TOO!!!

RIP Leland!!! Now you can live in peace in Heaven with OP.
