    Prince George's County Police have charged a man with killing two D.C. men during an argument.

    Authorities say on Wednesday, officers were called to Central Avenue in Capitol Heights for a report of a shooting. Police say the officers found 37-year-old Ernest Lott and 43-year-old Garland Johnson dead of gunshot wounds outside an apartment building.
