Two officers shot in Prince George's County, police say

Two police officers were injured in a shooting Wednesday night in Prince George’s County while serving a drug-related search warrant, police said.

According to the Prince George’s County Police Department, the officers were shot in the 2700 block of Lorring Drive in the District Heights neighborhood near the Washington border.

Both were flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Prince George’s County police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said one officer is in serious condition.

Donelan said officers were executing the warrant at an apartment when a man inside the apartment fired a shotgun at officers. She said one officer was shot in the hand and the other in the shoulder. She said another officer shot at the suspect, but missed.

She said a medic was a part of the team serving the warrant and treated the wounded officers. She said the suspect then surrendered to authorities. Donelan said more information will be released Thursday.

This story will be updated.
