Men shot and wounded in Landover

The two men shot in the Landover area of Prince George’s County Tuesday night remained hospitalized in critical condition Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Cpl. Erica Johnson, a Prince George’s County police spokeswoman, said it remains unclear who shot the men or why. She said police were called to the scene in the 7400 block of Village Green Drive just before 8:15 p.m. Tuesday and arrived to find two men, one 19 and the other 23, suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were taken to a nearby hospital, where they remained Wednesday morning, Johnson said.
