PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — Police are investigating two separate shootings in Prince George's County that happened within minutes of each other Friday evening, one of which was fatal.

The first reported shooting happened in the block of 2300 Iverson Street in Hillcrest Heights. Officers responded to the scene after 6:30 p.m. and found a man shot, but he is expected to survive.

The second shooting happened minutes later at the Mall at Prince George's in Hyattsville.

According to a spokesperson from the Prince George's Police Department, one person was killed in the shooting inside the mall. No other injuries have been reported.

On Sunday, Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit identified the victim as 22-year-old Daquan Dockery of Washington, D.C. Preliminarily, detectives do not believe this was a random crime.

Two people ran from the area following the shooting. No suspect information is available. The motive behind the shooting in Hyattsville is unclear.

A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 301-516-2512.
