    Prince George’s County Fire and EMS took a D.C. police officer to MedStar with life-threatening injuries following a hit-and-run Tuesday evening.

    The officer was stopped on his motor cycle near 46th and A streets in Southeast when he was struck by a white Lexus about 6:30 p.m., police said.

    Police located the striking vehicle in the 4900 block of A Street SE and arrested three Southeast residents after canvassing the area.
