Man, 35, killed in troubled area of Langley Park
A man was killed Sunday night in an area of Langley Park that has long been a source of trouble for Prince George's County police, authorities said.
Officers were called to the 8100 block of 15th Avenue for a report of unknown trouble about 11:30 p.m., authorities said. When they arrived, they found Juan Perez Ramirez, 35, suffering from stab wounds, authorities said.
Ramirez, pf the 8100 block of 14th Avenue in Langley Park, was transported to a hospital, where he later died, authorities said.
Police said the killing stemmed from a “personal dispute,” but they declined to provide further details.
The 8100 block of 15th Avenue, home to the Villas at Langley apartment complex, has long drawn the attention of Prince George’s County police because it is frequently the site of violent disputes among the mostly Hispanic residents who live there.
Last year, police recorded two homicides in the 8100 block of 15th Avenue and a third just down the road in the 8500 block.
