BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Prince George’s County Police have arrested a man they say gunned down three people and injured two others in Forestville.
About 9:35 p.m., officers were called to a home in the 3100 block of Orleans Avenue. Inside they found five people shot, three of them fatally, according to police. The other two remain hospitalized with critical injuries.
Investigators believe the suspect, now identified as Lawrence Sylvester Rogers Jr., 24, who was captured in surveillance video running from the scene while carrying what appears to be a handgun, acted alone. They do not believe the shooting was random, but have yet to determine a motive.
On Monday, police released images of the suspect. One photo is a still from surveillance video, which shows him hurrying across a street, tucking something into his waistband and then hopping a fence. Another photo shows him at a convenience store on Marlboro Pike about a half hour before the shooting was reported.
Killed in the shooting were Carlina Renee Gray, 50, of Forestville; Jan Marie Parks, 55, of Landover; and Allen Rowlett, 60, of Forestville. Those who survived have not been identified.
Rogers is charged with three counts of first and second degree murder.
