3 killed over weekend in Pr. George's
Three people were shot and killed and two others wounded in three separate incidents in Prince George’s County Saturday, authorities said Monday.
The violence began just before 1 a.m. in the 3800 block of Regency Parkway in the Suitland area, authorities said.
Police were called to the area for the report of a shooting and arrived to find Antwann Massey, 34, who lived nearby, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, said Officer Evan Baxter, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Police Department.
Massey was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died, Baxter said.
Just after 4 a.m., police were called to another shooting at an apartment complex in the unit block of Cindy Lane in the Capitol Heights area, Baxter said. Detectives eventually found three victims with gunshot wounds, one who later died, he said.
Police identified the deceased as Bryant A. West, 30, of Southeast D.C. A 22-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were also shot, Baxter said.
Police are also investigating a third homicide from Saturday that occurred in the 5000 block of Fable Street in the Capitol Heights area, authorities said. Baxter confirmed a homicide but said he could not immediately provide details.
Police issued a news alert about the case just after 1 p.m. Saturday, saying a male was found suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper body and pronounced dead at the scene.
Baxter said police had not made any arrests in any of the killings, but they appeared to be unconnected.
