2 men shot to death in Adelphi

By Erica Johnston

Two men were shot to death Sunday evening outside an apartment house in the Adelphi area of Prince George’s County, authorities said.

The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. in the 7900 block of Riggs Road, the county police said. The address is in a commercial district about one mile west of the College Park campus of the University of Maryland.

Police said they were looking for two or three men who may have fled the scene in an automobile.

No information about any motive in the shooting was known immediately.

Riggs Road is to the west of the University of Maryland, not the east.

And it's also not in a commercial district.

"The address is in a commercial district about one mile east of the College Park campus of the University of Maryland."

As has been pointed out, this is very incorrect. However, it is two block behind Tick Tock.

So, there's a tip. Check their cameras.

I don't doubt it's a tragedy regardless of where it happened. But when reporters from the local news section of the website don't know basic geography of the area they're reporting on it makes me wonder about the accuracy of other aspects of the reporting as well.
