Girl, 3, and suspect killed during shootout with MD police

Posted: Updated:

Prince George's County police say a 3-year-old girl has died after she was riding in a car with a man who got into a shootout with police.

Police reported late Saturday afternoon that the girl had died of her injuries.

She was riding in a car driven by a man who was fatally shot by police in Temple Hills earlier Saturday. Police say he shot at officers, and officers returned fire, on two occasions. The second time, he was killed. Police say six officers fired their weapons.

After the shooting stopped, officers found the girl in the car, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Earlier, police say the man shot and critically wounded two people in Camp Springs. The victims are believed to be the girl's maternal grandfather and great-grandmother.
