By Erica Johnston


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, authorities said. The victim has been identified as Charles Daniel Williams, 31, of Southeast D.C.

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 was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said. That victim's name has not been released.

Officer Henry Tippett, a Prince George’s County police spokesman, said the two killings appeared to be unrelated.
