- A 49-year-old woman has died and four other people were hospitalized after an overnight shooting in Prince George’s County. The shooting happened just before 2:30 a.m. in the 6600 block of Hil Mar Drive in Forestville.

Police said at around 1:25 a.m. Tuesday, officers were to the shooting scene and found Joanne Woods of District Heights suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two of the four other wounded victims are still in the hospital while the other two have been released. None of their injuries are considered life-threatening.
