Prince George’s County Police (PGPD) have charged a suspect with attempted murder in a shooting that occurred around 4 a.m. on March 12 at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites at 9020 Baltimore Avenue in College Park.

PGPD’s Gun Crimes Unit Commander Lt. Paul Gambardella said a woman was critically injured and taken to the hospital, but she has since been discharged. The victim knew her assailant and told police they had arrived at the hotel together, according to Gambardella. 

Police took the male suspect into custody on March 14. Christina Cotterman, PGPD’s assistant manager for media relations, said the suspect faces charges of attempted first- and second-degree murder, assault in the first and second degree, and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Separately, a pair of shootings on April 11 and 15 at the Bowlero bowling alley, at 9021 Baltimore Avenue, remain under investigation, according to police. These shootings do not appear to be connected to each other or to the hotel incident, police said. 

The April 11 shooting, which occurred around 10:30 p.m, left one male victim in critical condition (as of press time, he is listed in stable condition). Police found the victim inside the bowling alley but said he was shot outside.

Police said the shooting resulted from a dispute between two adult men. As of press time, a suspect had not been arrested.

The April 15 incident, which occurred shortly after midnight, resulted in no injuries. After receiving a call reporting gunfire, police located an adult male who said he was shot at by an unknown assailant, Gambardella said. The suspect or suspects were riding in a black sedan, according to police. As of press time, no arrests had been made.

Anyone with information about the shootings should contact Prince George’s County Crime Solvers at 866.411.TIPS (8477),  online at pgcrimesolvers.com or via the P3 Tips mobile app, available at the Apple and Google Play stores.
