HILLCREST HEIGHTS, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been shot and killed near a playground in the Hillcrest Heights area.

 

Prince George’s County police say the shooting happened in the 4700 block of 23rd Parkway about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. Officials say the man was taken to a hospital where he later died. He has not been identified.

Juan Taylor, a 17-year-old who lives nearby, tells The Washington Post that he heard three or four shots and then saw young children scattering from the playground. He says he saw a man who appeared to be running toward the playground stumble and fall.

 

Officials said they were working to identify a suspect.
