HILLCREST HEIGHTS, Md. (AP) — Police have identified a 15-year-old boy who was shot to death near his home in Prince George’s County.

Police say Charles Walker Jr. was a student at Suitland High School. He was found suffering from a gunshot wound Monday afternoon in the 4000-block of 28th Avenue in Hillcrest Heights, just two blocks from his home.

Walker was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Police say they are working to establish a motive.

The victim’s aunt, Laurice Massey, tells a TV station that the teen was heading to a bus stop when he was attacked. She says he may have been killed for his shoes.

The Prince George’s County school system released a statement calling the death “senseless.”
