- — Martin Weil and Katie Mettler

A Landover man has been arrested and charged with murder in a weekend shooting that left one man dead and a second man and a 7-year-old boy wounded, Prince George’s County police said.

De Lonta Terrence White, 32, is being held without bond at the county jail on charges that include first- and second-degree murder.

The gunfire occurred around 8:25 p.m. on Sept. 12 in the 7600 block of Marlboro Pike, police said.

The victims apparently then drove to the 2000 block of Addison Road South, where officers later found 28-year-old Shakir Taylor inside an SUV with a gunshot wound. Taylor, of District Heights, died at the scene.

The other man and the boy were taken to hospitals with injuries that did not appear lifethreat­ening, police said.

Police said Wednesday in a news release announcing the arrest that White and Taylor were “known to each other” and that the shooting stemmed from an “ongoing dispute.”

The shooting happened in a commercial section of the Forestvill­e area.
