Man killed in Suitland shooting

By Debbi Wilgoren

A man was shot to death early Wednesday in Suitland, police said.

He is the 14th homicide victim in Prince George's County so far this year.

The man, whose name has not been released, was found in the 3500 block of Terrace Drive, a cul-de-sac, about 2:45 a.m.

He was taken to an area hospital and pronounced dead, Prince George's County police spokesman Cpl. Henry Tippett said.

No further information was immediately available.

On Tuesday, police announced three arrests in the county's first slaying of the year - the stabbing of a Chillum man who was found dead on New Year's Day. With the arrests, detectives now have closed four of 2011's criminal homicides.

This item has been updated since it was first published.
