Prince George’s County police say the bodies of three adults who were shot to death have been found in a Capitol Heights apartment in the 5200 block of Marlboro Pike, reports CBS DC.

Police identified the victims as Ortiz Ola, 38, of the 5200 block of Marlboro Pike, Weldon Mason, 33, of the 10000 block of Washington Boulevard in Laurel and Staci Taneesha White, 33, of the 13000 block of Larchdale Road in Laurel. 

A family member of one of the victims called 911 after discovering the bodies, the department’s Facebook page says. That family member had gone to the apartment to check on a loved one. When officers arrived, they discovered the bodies of the three victims, each suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. They were pronounced dead on the scene. 

Preliminarily, there do not appear to be any prior calls for service at Ola’s apartment on Marlboro Pike.

Investigators are trying to determine a suspect and motive in the case. Detectives plan to return to the neighborhood Sunday afternoon to talk with members of the community.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), text “PGPD plus your message” to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone or go to www.pgcrimesolvers.com and submit a tip online.

The department says a reward of up to $25,000 is offered to anyone who provides information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.

I bet it was those Tea Party Americans again, you know the democrats call them all terrorists because they want to a abide by the constitution, how can this be happening? We passed gun laws, the gun manufacturing companies are all out of Maryland so are the jobs, but we know jobs are not important anymore as long as the people vote for democrats, you mean to tell me criminals are following the laws? I am just floored I tell you floored, so how or another it has to be YT's fault and every democrat in Maryland will tell us how "we need more funding" instead of we need more parenting and less out of wedlock births, shhh they might be the answers and we know democrats want no answers.
