1 dead in Prince George’s Co. double shooting

An early morning shooting in Lanham, Maryland left one person dead and another in the hospital on Sunday.

It happened around 3 a.m. at a house on Alcona Street in Lanham. According to police, the two victims were both found inside the house.

“They discovered an adult male and an adult female suffering from gun shot wounds,” said Corporal Kendyle Johnson with Prince George’s County police.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, while the woman was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Police said whatever prompted the violence appears to be isolated to that home, and that this was not a random act. The search for suspects also means this probably was not a murder-suicide, officials added.

“At this time it doesn’t look to be that way,” said Johnson, who also said it isn’t something “the neighborhood or anybody else should be in fear of.”
