3 men shot in separate incidents in Prince George’s and D.C.

Two people were shot Tuesday night in the Kent area of Prince George’s County and a third person was shot in the District about two miles away less than an hour later, authorities said.

In the first incident, Prince George’s County police got a call from a man at Sheriff Road and Village Green Drive who said he was shot about 8:15 p.m., said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a spokesman. A short while later, police found another male who was shot near that location, officials said.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, but police officials did not immediately release their conditions. Investigators were trying to determine where the men were shot and whether they were shooting at each other, officials said.

About 9 p.m., D.C. police were called to 48th Street and Minnesota Avenue NE and found a man who had been shot, but he was conscious and breathing, said Officer Hugh Carew, a D.C. police spokesman. The victim was taken to a hospital, but his condition could not be immediately learned.

It was not immediately known whether the incidents were connected.
