2 killed in shootings in Pr. Georege's

By Washington Post Editors

Two people were killed in apparently unrelated shootings in Prince George’s County Saturday evening, authorities said.

Few details were immediately available on either killing. The first occurred about 7:30 p.m. in the 5700 block of Auth Road in the Suitland area, authorities said. Police called for the report of a shooting arrived to find a man suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The second shooting occurred just after 9:30 p.m. near an Exxon gas station in the 6600 block of Riverdale Road in the Riverdale area, authorities said. Police called for the report of a shooting arrived to find a male suffering from a gunshot wound. He, too, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Officer Henry Tippett, a Prince George’s County police spokesman, said the two killings appeared to be unrelated. He said he could not immediately identify either man or provide information on suspects or motives in the slayings.

I don't know where this "nearby hospital" is, but there sure are a lot of people who die there.

Obama's America?!? That's quite ignorant. You say that as if gun violence only started after his election. I work with the gun industry and if the average person had any idea how many firearms are brought everyday in the country, t would be a HUGE eye opener. But that's the way we want it.....

Obama's America?!? That's really a silly statment in my estimation. You say that as if gun violence only started AFTER his election.
