A man was shot and killed in a Landover, Maryland shopping complex on Tuesday, leaving shoppers rattled and an investigation underway. Prince George’s County Police sources told News4 that the shooting took place inside a Dollar Tree.
“I was shocked and surprised and now it’s kind of scary. I was headed to that store,” Teonna Davis said. “I’m glad I didn’t come out earlier.”
She and her fiancé Tyron Martin walked to the Dollar Tree at the shopping center, but couldn’t cross the crime scene tape.
“I think it’s crazy, real crazy because you shouldn’t be able to live like this,” Martin said. “You should be able to go into any store you want to and this shouldn’t happen.”
