Shooting in Landover townhome community leaves 2 dead, 1 injured

A shooting in a townhome community in Landover left two people dead, and one more injured Wednesday night. 

Corporal Washington said the Prince George's County Police Department received a call reporting the gunfire just before 9:30 p.m.

When officers got to the residence in the 6900 block of Stansbury Lane, they found two victims – a man and a young girl – suffering from gunshot wounds. 

Authorities have identified the deceased suspect as 38-year-old Curtis Lynch and the victim, Mailyn Turkes – whom the family says is 11.

First responders pronounced Lynch and Turkes dead at the scene while the other person was taken to a hospital with what they described as "non-life-threatening" injuries. 

FOX 5's Shomari Stone spoke to a man at the scene of the crime who said he lost his 11-year-old great-niece in the shooting. The man, who said his name was "Alvin," claims that his niece's husband shot her and her daughter, before turning the gun on himself.  

Detectives have confirmed those details. They believe the incident was a domestic-related murder-suicide.
