Prince George's County detectives are investigating a homicide over the weekend in Suitland, Md. 

Brandon Johnson, 17,  was found Saturday around 3:15 a.m. during a routine welfare check in the 4900 block of Suitland Road. When police arrived, Johnson was suffering from a gunshot wound in a nearby parking lot. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

"You know, he'd make everyone smile," Brandon's aunt Lynn Whittington told News4. "For somebody to do him like this in a cowardly way and get rid of him like he's a piece of trash is unspeakable to me." 

Prince George's County Police Department is currently searching for information regarding a suspect or motive in the case. Anyone with information regarding the case is urged to call Prince George's County Police Department at 301-772-4925 or, to remain anonymous, 866-411- TIPS (8477). 

Johnson was an athlete at Crossland High School.
