Prince George’s County police have identified the man who was shot and killed while walking out of a convenience store in Laurel, Maryland, on Monday.
In a statement Tuesday, they said Alexander Lee Ross II, 34, of Laurel, was confronted outside the store on Laurel Bowie Road, near the northbound exit ramp for the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, a little before 6 a.m. Monday by someone with a gun.
He ran, and the suspect chased and shot him. Ross was found at the far end of the parking lot and died at a hospital later.
Police don’t think it was a random shooting. “The victim was shot multiple times,” Prince George’s County Police Cpl. Nicholas Clayton said Monday. “This tells us that this was a targeted incident.”
