At 7:30 p.m. Monday, homicide detectives were called to Suitland, Maryland. There they found Marceese Norman, 30, of District Heights, who had been shot and killed inside a car on Whitehall Street.
Just two hours later, detectives were investigating the fatal shooting of Anthony Frost, 31, in the 7900 block of Glenarden Parkway in Glenarden.
Later, the sound of gunshots led police to Pennbrook Circle in Landover, just after 10 a.m. Tuesday, where they found a man in the roadway who had been shot to death. The victim's name has not been made public.
