Two Prince George’s County teenagers were shot Tuesday — just one day after a Suitland High School freshman was shot and killed.
The shooting occurred just after 5:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of Donnell Drive in Forestville. The two 18-year-old males were shot multiple times.
Both teens were transported to a local trauma center. Aaron Burrell Kidd, of District Heights, was pronounced dead at the hospital. Kidd was a ninth-grade student at Suitland High School.
The second teen, Andre Walter Shuford, died Wednesday afternoon from his wounds. Police said the Forestville teen was not a student.
Although this shooting occurred just over 24 hours after another Suitland High School student was fatally shot, police do not believe the two incidents are related. Homicide detectives are working to develop a motive and to identify suspects in this case.
Suitland High freshman Charles Walker Jr., 15, was killed in the 4000 block of 28th Avenue in Hillcrest Heights around 4:30 p.m. Monday. Police said Walker was killed in an attempted robbery over a pair of shoes. Five suspects were apprehended and charged with first-degree murder in this case.
Kidd is the sixth Prince George’s County student killed this school year.
“We are horrified to learn that tragedy struck another one of our students within a 24-hour time-span,” said Briant K. Coleman, Prince George’s County Public Schools spokesman, in a statement. “Our hearts are broken again, and we extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. We cannot go another day without addressing these unspeakable acts of violence against our students. We are asking for the community’s support as our students, teachers and employees cope with these incidents.”
