Sounds of Shots
In response to several calls we’ve received here at the police station, I want to provide residents some information regarding shots being fired at about 1 AM Wednesday morning. At that time, officers from MRPD, Hyattsville PD, Prince George’s County PD and Bladensburg PD investigated the sound of shots in the area of 29th Street and Arundel Road in the Kaywood apartment complex. Officers on the scene heard approximately eight gunshots, and we received several reports from residents who heard them as well. The responding officers set up a perimeter around 29th and Arundel and thoroughly searched the area. We were not unable to locate any responsible individual(s), nor were we able to find any evidence of damage or injury, and no guns, shell casings or other ballistic evidence could be located.
