    The first incident happened shortly after midnight. Officers responded to a report of gunshots in the 3900 block of Bexley Place in Suitland. Investigators discovered an unresponsive man suffering from gunshot wounds. He later died.

    Two more shootings occurred several hours later in Fort Washington.

    A man, also unresponsive, was found on the 7200 block of Crafford Place at about 2:30 a.m. The man died of his injuries.

    Police discovered a third shooting victim, who was already dead when they arrived. The body was found at the intersection of Tucker and Palmer roads.

    Prince George’s County authorities reported that all three cases are being investigated as homicides, but they do not believe the killings are linked.
