When they arrived they discovered a man in a hallway suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

3300 block of Buchanan Street: At about 11:15 p.m. officers on patrol came upon an injured man lying in the street bleeding from his nose and head. The officers summoned fire/rescue personnel who treated the man on the scene and then transported him to Prince George’s Hospital for further treatment. The officers interviewed him at the hospital and he told them that all he could remember was that he was attacked from behind and beaten. He could not give any sort of description of the person(s) who attacked him and caused his injuries. The officers, along with PGPD robbery detectives, could not determine if the man had been the victim of a robbery other than being assaulted.
