One shot at vigil for slain youth

A man at a vigil for a youth who was slain in Prince George’s County was himself shot Friday night, county police said. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The incident occurred in the 5200 block of 85th Avenue in the New Carrollton area, police said.

That is near the site where Christopher Donald Smith, 16, a student at Flowers High School, was found fatally shot about 10:45 p.m. Monday night.

Few details were available Friday night. The man shot was not identified and the circumstances that preceded the gunshot could not be learned immediately.

It could not be learned whether the incident was connected in any way to the vigil or to the slain Flowers student.
