A man was killed early Thursday morning in Capitol Heights, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 5 a.m. in the 900 block of Drum Avenue, near the intersection with Fable Street, authorities said.

Prince George's County police officers were called for the report of a shooting, and arrived to find a man dead inside a vehicle. Police later identified the man as 28 year-old Antonio DeShawn Baxter, who lived in the area.

Investigators are working to establish a suspect and motive in the case.

Aw. That's too bad. Capitol Heights is usually such a nice, quiet neighborhood. Hardly ever hear police/ambulance sirens or gunshots.

@TaxiDriver I would have you to know that the world is a ghetto so you can come down off your high horse now.

I am so glad that neither of you have to worry about bringing a love one home like his family has to do. You do think that not one would see these comments. Think for ones it does not matter at this time what you assume someone is or have done no one and I mean no one has the right to take another's life. Negative comments over a person's death shows how bad society is and validates the fact that it lacks compassion for humanity. And that makes you and other's like you Priceless and Worthless.
