An Oxon Hill man was shot and killed Sunday morning in Hillcrest Heights.

Prince George’s County police and fire departments found Jerome Zephier Peters, 22, around 1 a.m. Sunday in the 2900 block of St. Clair Drive. He had been shot multiple times, Cpl. Nicole Hubbard said.

Bystanders performed CPR on Peters before paramedics arrived. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene, an official said.

The preliminary investigation suggests this murder is domestic-related, police said. 

Peters was at a family member’s home caring for his young child. The child’s mother and a male acquaintance arrived to pick up the child. Allegedly, an argument ensued between the two men, and Peters was shot.

Detectives are working to identify and locate the suspect.

Peters’ death is the 35th homicide of 2013 in Prince George’s County.
