Dice Game May Have Sparked Capitol Heights Shooting, Sources Say

A game of dice may have led to the shooting that left two teenagers dead and four other people hurt Sunday in Capitol Heights, Maryland.

Multiple police sources told News4 about the dice game a day after 14-year-old Todd James Webb Jr. and 18-year-old Brian Davis were killed.

The high school students died after someone opened fire on the 6800 block of Walker Mill Road, in the parking lot of the apartment complex where Webb lived.

Police arrived about 2:45 a.m. Webb and Davis died, one man has life-threatening injuries, another person still is hospitalized with less serious injuries and two other people were treated at a hospital and released, police said.

Davis lived in Northwest D.C. and attended Roosevelt Senior High School. On Monday, students there left flowers and wrote notes about Davis on neon poster boards.

"It was a sad day," classmate Darius Sellers said.

Counselors were available at the school to speak with students. Students are planning a balloon ceremony in Davis's memory, they said.

Webb was a freshman at Suitland High School in Forestville, Maryland. He was shot just steps from his front door.

The high school was closed Monday. Counselors are expected to be on hand to talk with students.
