A teenager was shot and killed Monday night in Prince George’s County, police said.

The victim was 17 years old and was found in the 2100 block of Iverson Street in the Hillcrest Heights area, county police said.

Police were called around 7:20 p.m. in response to the report of a shooting and said the youth was found near the steps of an apartment house. He was taken to a hospital, where he died shortly after arrival, police said.

No name was released for the victim.

Police were at the scene late Monday investigating the incident. No details were immediately available about any motive for the shooting or about any possible suspects.

The scene of the shooting was about two miles north of the Capital Beltway, within a zone of communities in which many of the homicides in the county have occurred this year.
