Two men are dead after a suspected murder-suicide in a Suitland, Maryland, home early on Saturday morning.

Prince George’s County police responded to the 3800 block of St. Barnabas Road, near the Marlow Heights Shopping Center, around 12:50 a.m. on June 20 for a report of shots fired.

They found 30-year-old Oxon Hill resident Addon Rush Jr. and 51-year-old Kevin Williams of Suitland suffering from gunshot wounds.

Detectives believe Rush’s wound was self-inflicted and that Rush shot Williams during an argument.

Both men were pronounced dead a short time later, the department said in a news release Monday.
