Vigil held for Md. teens injured in shooting while playing video games

Cold and windy weather didn't keep hundreds of people from attending a vigil at Frederick Douglass High School in Upper Marlboro.

They were here Friday night after police say a 16-year-old football player shot and injuring his two teammates and then himself earlier in the week.

The theme of this vigil was all about hope as all three teenagers are recovering from their injuries, with one of the victims in critical condition.

Dozens of Prince George's County students and their parents used the vigil to heal each other after three of their varsity football players were shot.

The prayers in the emotional vigil happened near the field here at the high school.

Police say the shooting began as an argument between 16-year-old football player Delano Dunmore and two of his teammates.

They were all playing video games in Dunmore's Clinton home on Sunday.

But police say after the argument, Dunmore grabbed his mother's registered gun and shot his two classmates before turning the gun on himself.

Dunmore is being charged as an adult in this case. He is facing a list of charges including two counts of attempted first-degree murder.
