Local news reports

Prince George's County police said an accidental shooting led to the death of a man in Brandywine, Md., Thursday morning.

He has been identified as Errick Lamar Pratt, 23, of Fort Washington.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.  "It's an unexpected tragedy," Pratt's aunt told News4.
"This group [of five] was playing around with a gun and that gun went off and tragically, it hit the 23-year-old man in the head," police spokesperson Julie Parker said.


  1. In Maryland, the land of strict gun control?

  2. "Playing around" with a loaded gun? That's not an accident.
