Police investigating murder in Lanham

Posted: Updated:

Prince George's County Police are investigating a murder in the 10100 block of Old Franklin Avenue in Lanham, Md.

Police received a call at 3:10 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a shooting and arrived to find a man in his 20s with a gunshot wound just inside the front door of a house. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Investigators say this was not a random shooting and the victim and shooter knew each other.

A neighbor says the house where the victim was found is a rental and the landlord lives across the street. People have only been living in the house for a few months.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Prince George's County Police Department's Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411 TIPS (8477), text "PGPD plus your message" to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone, or go to http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/police/ and submit a tip online.
