Police ID man found shot to death in park

Police have identified the man found fatally shot Monday in Oxon Run Park as Salaam Adams — a 20-year-old from Durham, N.C.

Detectives are still working to determine who killed Adams and why. They also are probing what he was doing in the area, police said. A person walking in Oxon Run Park, which sits in the 2600 block of Oxon Run Drive in the Temple Hills area, found his body about 7:25 a.m. Monday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
