Forestville stabbings unrelated: Police
Police in Prince George’s County are investigating two unrelated fatal stabbings that occurred just a minute apart from each another in the Forestville area early Sunday morning, authorities said.
In the first incident, police were called to the 2800 block of Parkland Drive at 3:37 a.m. They arrived to find Edwin Y. Reyes, 21, of Lanham, who had apparently been stabbed, said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a Prince George’s County police spokesman.
He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. Investigators believe the incident stemmed from a dispute at a party Reyes was attending, Rodriguez said, but they have not made any arrests.
In the second incident, police were called to the CFE nightclub in the 7700 block of Marlboro Pike at 3:38 a.m., Rodriguez said. They arrived to find that George H. Cooper, 25, of Northeast D.C., had been stabbed. He, too, was transported to an area hospital, where he later died.
Rodriguez said investigators do not yet have any suspects or know a motive for the stabbing, but they do not believe it to be connected to the stabbing at the party.
