Landover man killed in Beltsville home

A Landover man was shot and killed inside a home in the Beltsville area of Prince George’s County early Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Police were called to the home in the 4600 block of Garrett Avenue at about 12:30 a.m. They arrived to find Afamefuna Jamaine Onwuka, 22, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, authorities said.

Onwuka was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said. Detectives do not know what prompted the shooting, nor do they have any suspects in the case, authorities said.
