The Prince Ge­orge’s County Po­lice De­part­ment is con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the fa­tal shoot­ing of an adult male who was found in the road­way last Wed­nes­day off of Old Branch Av­enue in Clin­ton.

On Aug. 10 around 12:30 p.m., po­lice re­sponded to the area of But­ter­field Drive and Chris Mar Av­enue in Dis­trict 5 af­ter some­one called to report a shoot­ing.

“Once the of­fi­cers ar­rived on scene, they found an adult male out­side suf­fer­ing from multi-

ple gun­shot wounds,” said Cpl. Harry Bond in a phone in­ter­view last Wed­nes­day.

The vic­tim, ac­cord­ing to the de­part­ment’s blog, is 24-year-old Regi­nald Lewis of Oak Leaf Court in Clin­ton. Lewis was pro­nounced dead on the scene.

“Right now, our homi­cide de­tec­tives and our ev­i­dence tech­ni­cians are go­ing over ev­i­dence,” Bond said. “Our de­tec­tives are go­ing door to door, can­vass­ing the area to de­ter­mine ex­actly what hap­pened and why.”

In terms of wit­nesses, Bond said that is an on­go­ing part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The de­part­ment is ask­ing the com­mu­nity to come for­ward with any in­for­ma­tion, he said.

“It’s def­i­nitely an ad­e­quate amount of of­fi­cers can­vass­ing the area in at­tempt to make an ap­pre­hen­sion,” he said. “That’s some­thing that’s on­go­ing as we speak.”

Af­ter nearly a week fol­low­ing Lewis’s death, Cpl. La­mar Robin­son — who is also a spokesman for the po­lice de­part­ment — said the homi­cide is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion as de­tec­tives are work­ing to iden­tify a mo­tive and sus­pects.

“All the up­dates are al­ready posted on our blog,” Robin­son said.

The de­part­ment is of­fer­ing a $25,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to an ar­rest and in­dict­ment in this case.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call the homi­cide unit at 301-7724925. Call­ers who wish to re­main anony­mous can call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-8477.
