Prince George’s County Police Investigate Riverdale Homicide

A fatally wounded man was found at a Prince George's County gas station late Wednesday.

Prince George's County Police received two emergency calls in a short time that night.

First, officers were called to the 5100 block of Edmonston Road in Hyattsville just after 11 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a shooting. Around the same time, a second call came in from a gas station at the intersection of Carters Lane and Kenilworth Avenue in the Riverdale area.

When officers arrived at the gas station, they found 18-year-old Rashad Jamal Clarke suffering from some sort of trauma to the body. However, investigators say there's no evidence that Clarke was shot.

He was transported to an area hospital, where he died a short time later.

The preliminary investigation found Clarke was with a group of friends that got into a fight with another group when he suffered his fatal injuries.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to donate for funeral costs.
