A Maryland police chief says seven adults were injured when shots were fired at a child's birthday party a few miles southeast of the nation's capital.
Prince George's County police Cpl. Nicholas Clayton tells the media that the shooting occurred Saturday night near the Camp Springs and Morningside areas. Police Chief Hank Stawinski said at a press conference that around 12 people were at a 2-year-old's birthday party when an individual fired shots into the gathering.
Stawinski says three of the seven people shot have "more serious" injuries but are stable and expected to survive. All seven are between the ages of 18 and 20.
The chief didn't release information about the suspect, who is still at large. He says there may have been words exchanged before the shooting.
Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, who was listed on the court docket by the name Maya Elizabeth McKinney but who identifies as male, were both arrested on suspicion of a single count.
The officers were released from area hospitals Tuesday afternoon and are recovering, Hwang said. A 30-year-old corporal was shot in the arm and chest, and Hwang said the officer’s ballistic vest likely saved his life.
