Shouldn't that be 800 blk of University BLVD EAST. . . NOT Avenue

Which makes the location on the fringe of Langley Park.

Some people would wonder why this is news. . . others will say, its easy to deport him now.

June 7, 2010, 7:48 PM

The unfortunate incident occurred at about one o'clock in the apartment complex University, located in the 800 block of the boulevard of the same name, near Carroll Avenue.

A 25-year-old Salvadoran national, identified as Felipe Flores Armando Giron, died shortly after being helped by paramedics when he was taken to the nearest hospital.

Luis Mayen, returning to his apartment found the victim lying on the grass and notified authorities to an emergency call 911.

Neighbors of the Piney Branch area where the murder occurred ensure that no shots were fired, only there were some screams and a few minutes we heard the sirens of police and rescue vehicles.

Many fear the outset that the uncertainty has come to its doors with this death in their apartment complex.

For the violent nature of death, the body of Felipe Giron was sent to the Medical Examiner's Office in Baltimore for their respective autopsy, while the police are offering a reward of $ 1,000 to callers to the Crimes Division at 240 - 773-5070 and provide useful information on this homicide.
