Fatal shooting in Adelphi

By Daniel de Vise

Update, Monday, Feb. 28:

A man was shot late Saturday in the hallway of an Adelphi apartment building, Prince George's police said.

Officers found an adult male in the 7400 block of 18th Avenue at 10:48 p.m. with a gunshot wound, said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a police spokesman.

Rodriguez initially said the shooting was fatal. On Monday, police spokesman Cpl. Evan Baxter said that was based on incorrect information from police communications. He said the man was shot and wounded but had not died.

Please be respectful. He's someone's cousin.

You know what you're getting into when you decide to be a drug dealer. I can't cry if you get shot or killed. I'd rather save my tears for a dog getting hit by a car.

Ain't like you were selling oranges or flowers by the side of the road.

You're chances of getting shot if you're NOT invoved in the drug trade or gangs is very small.

Maybe this was a domestic dispute. In some families, everyone has at least one gun.

PG homicide detectives don't get a chance to breathe. Take a break from shooting people, y'all.
