Prince George’s County Police have identified the man who was fatally shot in Forestville on Monday morning as 25-year-old Delonte Allen Jackson of Fort Washington.

Police found Jackson suffering from a gunshot wound in the 3200 block of Walters Lane at a BP gas station, police said.

Police responded to the area around 3 a.m. Monday after receiving a call about a shooting. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Jackson, who had been shot while standing in the lobby of the gas station, said Nicole Hubbard, a Prince George’s County spokeswoman. Police believe the motive for Jackson’s death was a robbery.

Jackson was transported to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

There are no suspects at this time.
