Seat Pleasant shooting victim identified

Police have identified the man fatally shot outside a gas station in Seat Pleasant Saturday as 31-year-old James Sharod Darnell, authorities said Tuesday.

Darnell, of D.C., was fatally shot just after midnight, very early Saturday morning, in the parking lot of the Lowest Price gas station in the 5600 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Highway, authorities have said. Cpl. Larry Johnson, a Prince George’s County police spokesman, said Tuesday that investigators are still searching for suspects and a motive in the case.

The name of the shooting victim has been corrected.
