No suspects or leads have been identified in the killing of a 20-year-old Suitland woman who was shot in the head outside a Seat Pleasant nightclub in 2011, police said.
Aug. 8 marks the two-year anniversary since Jasmine Banks was fatally shot in the MSG nightclub parking lot in the 7900 block of Central Avenue. Banks and her friends were leaving the club when shooters in two cars opened fire at the club from about 50 yards away on Central Avenue, police said.
Prince George’s County Police Department responded to the shooting just before 3 a.m. Aug. 8, 2011. Officers found Banks in the parking lot. She had been shot in the back of her head and was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to police reports.
After working the case for several months, homicide detectives did not have any leads to identify suspects or to establish a motive. But, MSG has been shut down for violations.
“Someone has to know about this,” a police official said. “We need that person to come forward.”
Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at (301) 772-4925.
