Break-in turns into homicide investigation
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.

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