Prince George’s County police arrested 22-year-old Robert Anthony Myers, a Bowie resident, on Thursday night after police say he shot and killed 18-year-old Devante Marcus King, also a Bowie resident.

At about 1:15 a.m. Thursday, police responded to the 13000 block of 6th Street for a shooting. When they arrived, they found King with gunshot wounds. King later died from his injuries.
