A 17-year-old boy died after being shot Saturday in Maryland, police in Bowie said.
His name was not immediately released.
Prince George’s County fire units received a call just before 4 p.m. “for a shooting victim being transported by a private vehicle,” Bowie Police Department Chief John Nesky said.
First responders caught up with the car in the eastbound lanes of Route 50 near Rutland Road in Anne Arundel County. The boy was transported from that car to Anne Arundel County Medical Center in Annapolis, where he was pronounced dead.
Other people in the vehicle said the victim was shot in Bowie, Nesky said, but Bowie police did not immediately determine where the shooting occurred.
“Once they determine the original scene, Prince George’s County police will lead a homicide investigation,” Nesky said.
Details on the shooting were not immediately released.
