Police have identified the man shot and killed as he sat in a car in the parking lot of Prince George's County's Penn Station shopping center Monday night as 34-year-old McKinney Antonio White Jr., of District Heights.

White was sitting in his car in the 5700 block of Silver Hill Road in the Suitland area about 5 p.m. Monday when a lone gunman approached the vehicle and opened fire, police have said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators are still trying to determine who shot White and why. Witnesses are asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.

White's homicide was Prince George's County's 15th this year.

Sounds like a Mafia hit. Case of mistaken identity? Or the usual drug war casualty?

Legalise Marijuana and put a stop to all the senseless violence that goes hand in hand with the prohibition of any drug.

Didn't we learn anything from the prohibition of alcohol?

Yes! Please, let's legalize all drugs so we won't ever have to exercise self-control or worry again about drugs that harm the human body.

Oh, that's right. Legalizing drugs won't change the part about drugs harming the body.

Normally, that would mean McKinney White was selling drugs in a parking lot considered to be the territory of a different dealer.

I'm pretty sure I don't want the pilot of the commercial airliner I'm riding on not to have easier access to marijuana. Same for the Metro train operator and guy driving the semi behind me.

OK. You wanna legalize pot.. Hmm...

Is anyone in favor of legalizing heroin, cocaine & meth?

I'd rather be alive & make my chump change than be looking over my shoulder 24-7. Jumping 10 feet in the air when there's a blow out. You sleep better at night when you're not involved in crime.

The legalization of drugs would cause increased stupidity in a society that seems that it cant get any dumber. Illegal drugs are worthless and so are the people that wqnt them legalized.
