OXON HILL, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — Police were able to quickly arrest the person believed to be responsible for a fatal shooting Monday night in Oxon Hill.
Cinaway Lateef Morson, 32, of Washington was found suffering from gunshot wounds in Sweet Soul Café and Lounge in the 800 block of Southern Avenue in Oxon Hill about 5:50 p.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
