Man shot dead in Capitol Heights

A Temple Hills man was shot to death Friday night in the Capitol Heights area of Prince George’s County, authorities said.

Police were called to the 1700 block of Kenilworth Avenue near the D.C. line just before 7:30 p.m. for the report of a shooting, authorities said.

They arrived to find 34-year-old Jimmie Lee Hunter suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

Homicide detectives are still trying to determine who shot Hunter and why, authorities said.
