WASHINGTON — Editor's Note: The video above aired Feb. 9 on a robbery and shooting in Bowie.
Police found a man, wounded by a bullet, driving around with a dead man in a vehicle Thursday morning.
Prince George's County Police Department tweeted Metropolitan police officers were in the 5000 block of Bass Place in Southeast D.C. around 1 a.m. Thursday. The officers were approached by a driver shot in his lower body, with a dead passenger inside the vehicle, a PGPD spokesperson told WUSA9.
The driver told officers he and his passenger had been shot while at the Ebony Inn restaurant in Prince George's County, located on Sheriff Road in Fairmount Heights.
First responders took the driver of the vehicle to a nearby hospital where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries.
The dead man has been identified by police as 31-year-old Eric Anthony Galloway.
A spokesperson for PGPD told WUSA9 that a 911 caller reported finding shell casings at the 5100 block of Leroy Gorham Drive in Capitol Heights. Investigators believe the shooting took place in this area — not the Ebony Inn — before the two men drove away.
Officers who responded to this area at 10:30 a.m. discovered a "crime scene," PGPD tweeted. According to police, no crime scene was found at the Ebony Inn.
Police in Prince George's County or D.C. have not released any suspect information and no arrests have been made in this case. It's not clear whether the men were targeted in the shooting.
PGPD is leading the remainder of this investigation. They ask that anyone with information call the PG County Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
