PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — On Wednesday, Oct. 10 Prince George's County's DuVal High School went on lockdown due to a shooting that occurred in the vicinity of the building. 

Also during this shooting, a funeral at a nearby Mosque was in progress, police said. Police were not aware of any connection between the two events. 

The Prince George's Police Department (PGPD) said that they were called for a shooting at the 9600 block of Good Luck Road in Lanham, Md.

Just after 2 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded and found an adult man who was suffering from gunshot wounds, according to PGPD.

The man was taken to the hospital in what police are saying is "stable condition." 

Detectives with PGPD tweeted that they do not believe this shooting was random in nature. 

At this point, the Prince George's County School system has not confirmed how long the lockdown lasted. 

PGPD detectives were on the scene working to establish suspect(s) and a motive in this case. If anyone has any information, please call @PGCrimeSolvers at 1-866-411-TIPS or submit your tip using the P3 Tips app.
