Prince George's County police say one man and two women are dead in an apparent domestic-related murder-suicide at a townhouse in District Heights.

Officers responded to the 1500 block of Addison Road South at 4:40 p.m. Friday for the report of a shooting. Police say officers had to force their way into the home in an attempt to save the people inside.



Officers found two women and one man suffering from gunshot wounds when they arrived. One of the women was pronounced dead at the scene.


The other two were transported to local hospitals where they died a short time later.

Multiple sources, including a Metro employee, tells FOX 5 that the man involved was a Metro bus driver.
