LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Prince George’s County Police say a teen was fatally shot in Upper Marlboro overnight Saturday.

Officers found 19-year-old Rashad Andre Pinkney, of Capitol Heights, Md., suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the body on the steps of a home in the 11700 block of North Marlton Avenue around midnight, authorities say.

Pinkney was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Officers had been in the 11800 block of North Marlton Avenue about an hour earlier for a report of the sound of gunshots and discovered hundreds of party-goers out in the street, police say.

As the officer tried to arrest her, she allegedly pushed the officer, breaking his leg and twisting his ankle. She is facing assault charges.
