LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — A 32-year-old woman was shot and killed by her ex-husband while returning from a birthday celebration early Wednesday morning in Fort Washington, Prince George’s County Police say.

The victim has been identified as Michelle Miranda-Fletcher.

Investigators say Lester Lee Fletcher, Jr., also 32, was waiting for his ex-wife when she and friends arrived at an apartment complex in the 7200 block of Jaywick Avenue. The recently divorced couple began arguing after the woman exited a car, police tell WNEW.

Shortly thereafter, witnesses in the car say Fletcher shot his former wife multiple times before turning the gun on himself.

The woman turned 32 Tuesday, authorities say.
