“Opening fire on a group of children and teens with absolutely no concern for their lives is unconscionable. I assure this community and all residents of Prince George’s County that my detectives are working around the clock to find and arrest the shooters before they can cause even more harm,” Prince George’s County police’s Maj. Trevel Watson said in a statement.
Two boys, 4 and 14, were hurt and have injuries that are not life-threatening, police said. The dog died at the scene.
Anyone with information on what happened should call 301-516-5201.
