Seven people were injured after a shooting at a toddler’s birthday party in Prince George’s County, Maryland, Saturday night.
Prince George’s police said the shooting happened around 9:15 p.m. at an apartment complex on the 6200 block of Maxwell Drive in Camp Springs.
Prince George’s County police Chief Hank Stawinski said the shooting happened at a birthday party for a 2-year-old.
About a dozen people were in attendance when a person approached the group. There may have been an argument before gunshots were fired into the crowd, police said.
“This has got to end. You’ve got a 2-year-old’s birthday party and you have shots ringing out,” Stawinski told reporters at the scene.
Three of the wounded were seriously injured but are expected to survive, police said. The other four of those injured were transported as a precautionary measure.
The victims were all between 18 and 20 years old, according to police.
