Maryland law enforcement are seeking a suspect and their vehicle in connection with the shooting death of a tow-truck driver Saturday, March 19, on U.S. Route 50 in Prince George’s County.
Maryland State Police released images Wednesday of a man suspected of shooting and killing 29-year-old Delonte Hicks on eastbound Route 50 before Md. Route 410 and the suspect’s vehicle, a gray Hyundai Sonata.
Detectives believe Hicks and the suspect were involved in an argument around 4:45 p.m. while driving east on Route 50 when the suspect pulled a gun and fired into Hicks’ vehicle. The suspect drove off before the police arrived.
Hicks died of his wounds. Police do not believe Hicks and the gunman knew each other before their encounter.
An investigation continues into the shooting, police said Wednesday, and the gunman’s identity is still unknown.
