A Prince George County’s man who was fatally shot at a Forestville shopping center Tuesday night has been identified as 27-year-old Anthony Ray Washington.
When Washington was killed, according to police, he was standing in a parking lot at the Penn Forest shopping center at about 8 p.m. talking to a woman, who was also struck by a bullet in the attack. She was hit in the arm and her injuries are not life-threatening, according to police.
A suspect wearing a ski mask and dark clothing walked up to them and opened fire, police said. Investigators said it appeared that Washington was the intended victim.
Police said they did not know whether Washington and the woman arrived together at the shopping center in the 3300 block of Walters Lane.
Washington lived in an apartment in the same block as the shopping center, police said.
