Man shot near D.C.-Md. border

By Erica Johnston


A man was shot and critically wounded Wednesday night near the Prince George's County-D.C. border, officials said.

It wasn't immediately clear in which jurisdiction the man was shot, but investigators found shell casings at Branch Avenue and Suitland Parkway, in the Hillcrest Heights area of Prince George's.

Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a county police spokesman, said a driver of a car carrying a wounded man flagged down a D.C. officer on the Suitland Parkway at Stanton Road about 9:15 p.m.

The injured man was taken to a nearby hospital.

THE DAY WE HONOR THE GREAT LIFE OF DOROTHY HEIGHT, THE BROTHERS ARE STILL KILLING EACH OTHER, NOW YOU SEE WHY BLACK WOMAN CANNOT FIND A A BLACK MAN BECAUSE MOST BLACK MEN CANNOT GIVE UP THE STREET LIFE AND STAY HOME AND BE A GOOD CITIZEN, ALSO DO NOT CUT THE FUNDING FOR THE PEACEOHOLICS.

Probably just some poor old drugged up he-boon trying to figure out where he lived. Sad.

Was it a DC death, or a PG county death?

Which locality will take claim to yet another homicide? *sigh*

Headline: "Man shot near D.C.-Md. border"

Gee, how did I guess this was on the PG border? I must be psychic.

You make it sound that dating a black man who isn't a thug is mutually exclusive. I am sure that there are plenty of decent black guys out there. From my anecdotal experience, black women tend to like guys with "swagger."

Just a thought and not a sermon.

Just another example of why this country needs stronger border enforcement - oh, wait ... I'm sorry, wrong story.

as far as border patrol I'm pretty sure your blood isn't pure no matter what color you are these days.
