A man was shot and killed early Saturday morning outside a gas station in the Seat Pleasant area of Prince George’s County, and police say they are searching for suspects and a motive in the case.

The man was shot close to midnight in the parking lot of the Lowest Price gas station the 5600 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Highway, authorities said. The area is very close to the District border.

Police said they are still working to identify the man and determine a suspect and motive in the case.
