Three shootings Tuesday in Prince George’s County have left three men hospitalized, and police are seeking suspects in each case, which are believed to be non-related.

Around 1 p.m., police responded to the 6300 block of Livingston Road in Oxon Hill at the Save-A-Lot grocery store for the report of a shooting. Police said an armored vehicle, operated by Loomis Armored, arrived at the store to transfer money to the vehicle when a silver car drove up and three or four masked suspects got out of the car and approached the Loomis employees. A courier was shot during the robbery and was transported to a hospital in serious condition, police said.

Police said Wednesday his injuries were not life-threatening and that he is listed in stable condition.

During the investigation, police obtained video surveillance from the shopping center that shows the silver four-door vehicle suspected in the shooting and are now seeking that vehicle. Loomis officials on the scene Tuesday declined to comment.

Later Tuesday, a man was shot in the 1000 block of Iago Avenue in Capitol Heights. Police said around 4:22 p.m., officers responded to the residential street for the report of a shooting. There they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest, and the man was transported to a hospital in serious condition, police said.

“We have very little information on that. At this point, there is no motive or suspect identified,” said Lt. Bill Alexander, a county police spokesman.

Nearly 10 minutes after the second shooting, police received a report of a shooting in Temple Hills, where they said a man had been shot during an armed robbery. In the 4300 block of 23rd Place, officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower portion of his body, police said.

Alexander said the man was transported to a hospital and his injuries are not life-threatening.

“An initial investigation shows that the victim was approached by a suspect who announced a robbery,” Alexander said. “There was a confrontation, and the victim was struck.”

There is no evidence to suggest that any of the shootings Tuesday were related, police said.

The cases are still being investigated.
