Man fatally shot in Palmer Park townhome

A 23-year-old man was shot and fatally wounded inside his Palmer Park townhome Thursday night and homicide detectives are searching for suspects and a motive in the case, authorities said.

Dlonte Renard Days was shot inside his home in the 1800 block of Village Green Drive about 11:30 p.m., police said. He died from his injuries at a hospital several several hours later.

Cpl. Maria McKinney, a Prince George’s County police spokeswoman, said investigators do not believe the case to be a home invasion and are still searching for suspects and a motive.
