LANDOVER, Md. (WUSA9) -- Four Prince George's County police officers are being credited for saving a man's life.
At 8:45 p.m. on June 2, officers responded to the 4000 block of Warner Avenue in Landover for a shooting where they found a man bleeding heavily from several gunshot wounds.
Police Officer Hodor, Police Officer Macklin, Police Officer Cruz, and Police Officer Hammond began first aid, and applied pressure to the victim's wounds to stem the flow of blood, according to police officers.
For several minutes, the officers prevented additional blood loss as they waited for medical personnel to arrive on the scene. All involved believe the victim would likely have died without the intervention of the officers.
Investigators believe the shooting was drug related, and the victim has since been uncooperative with investigators, police say.
