Break-in turns into homi­cide in­ves­ti­ga­tion

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — T. Rees Shapiro

Prince Ge­orge’s County po­lice opened a homi­cide in­ves­ti­ga­tion Satur­day af­ter a shoot­ing in a res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood near Brandy­wine.

Po­lice spokesman Cpl. Harry Bond said de­tec­tives were on the scene of the shoot­ing that left one dead in a home in the 12600 block of Lus­bys Lane.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, of­fi­cers re­sponded to a re­port of a shoot­ing at about 12:30 p.m. and found a man suf­fer­ing from mul­ti­ple gun­shot wounds. He was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

In a state­ment posted to Twit­ter, po­lice said two peo­ple broke into a home and ex­changed gun­fire with peo­ple in­side the res­i­dence. One of the in­trud­ers was shot and killed. The other per­son is at large, Bond said, adding that there is no de­scrip­tion of the per­son who fled.

One of the oc­cu­pants of the home was taken to a hos­pi­tal with in­juries not con­sid­ered to be life-threat­en­ing, po­lice said in a state­ment.

Bond said the shoot­ing does not ap­pear to be ran­dom and that po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing ties be­tween the oc­cu­pants of the home and the in­trud­ers.

The mo­tive for the break-in is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Bond said.
