Violent Night in Prince George's Leaves 1 Dead, 1 Injured

A violent night in Prince George's County, Maryland, left one man dead and another critically injured.

Police say the victims were injured in separate incidents that happened just four miles apart.

Lorenzo Dancy, 61, of Northeast Washington was found wounded on the 6700 block of Geneva Lane in Camp Springs just before 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. Dancy had been stabbed, according to police. 

He was taken to the hospital, where he died a short time later. 

Police do not believe it was a random crime. 

Two hours later, a cab driver was found lying in the 9000 block of Ballard Lane in Clinton with gunshot wounds. Silver Cab of Prince George's County confirmed the victim is one of their drivers. 

"All of a sudden we heard four or five shots. I got up and look out of the window and then I saw the guy lying on the ground," said Ronald Currie, a neighbor who called 911.

As Currie looked from his window, he said he saw an act of kindness when it was needed the most.

"He brought a blanket and covered him up with the blanket. It all kind of happened at the same time," Currie said of another neighbor.

The victim was taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition. 

Police could been seen collecting evidence around the victim's silver taxi cab after they arrived. 

Anyone who may have been in the area at the time is asked to call police.  

No arrests have been made in either case.
