It happened shortly before 9 p.m. in the 3300 block of Walters Lane. Residents and shoppers recalled hearing multiple gunshots.

Anthony Washington, 27, was shot and killed in front of Sword and Spirit Church. A woman was also shot and wounded but able to run into a local business, where a merchant called 911. She was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening wounds.

Washington’s sister told ABC7’s John Gonzalez her brother didn’t live in the area but often hung out there with friends.

Prince George's County Police officers are canvassing the area for the gunman. The woman is expected to survive, police say.
