Police: Arrest warrant issued for Laurel man tied to fatal shooting of friend

WASHINGTON — What began as an argument between friends ended with one person fatally shot in Fort Washington, Maryland on Sunday night. Now police are looking for a man they say is tied to the killing.

Prince George’s County police obtained an arrest warrant on a charge of first-degree murder for Christopher Cyprus Crawford, 33, of Laurel, Maryland.
