Prince George's homicide investigated

By Mary Pat Flaherty

A Bladensburg man was shot and killed early Monday morning in an area of Prince George's County that has seen a spate of homicides in recent months.

Alfred Massey III, 25, was shot multiple times at about 2:30 a.m. in the 3400 block of Dodge Park Road - an area that in September saw two homicides in less than two weeks. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sources said at the time those two killings appeared to be unrelated, and Cpl. Henry Tippett, a Prince George's County police spokesman, said he was not given any indication the most recent slaying was connected to either of the other two. He said this one might have stemmed from some "drug activity," though police had no suspects.
