Man fatally shot outside nightclub
A man was shot to death in the parking lot of a Prince George’s County meeting hall early Saturday, the 16th homicide of the year for the county.
The victim’s name and age were not immediately released. No suspects were in custody, police said.
The shooting happened about 3:30 a.m. outside Plaza 23 Event Center on St. Barnabas Road in Temple Hills, Prince George’s Cpl. Evan Baxter said. A concert by the popular go-go group the TCB Band had just ended, and a crowd of people was in the parking lot of the hall.
Baxter said he did not know how or why an altercation broke out, but he said investigators believe that 50 to 100 people were present when the man was shot in the upper body. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.
Police were appealing for witnesses to the shooting to contact them, and Baxter stressed that callers to 1-866-411-TIPS (8677) can remain anonymous.
