Prince George’s County Police are investigating the fatal shooting of Kquante Fisher, 19, who was found dead Wednesday morning in Fort Washington.

At 9:25 a.m., police responded to a home at the 6100 block of Kildare Court for a welfare check, and upon arrival, officers found Fisher suffering from a gunshot wound, said county police spokesman Lt. William Alexander.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and preliminary investigation shows the shooting was not accidental, Alexander said. Fisher had previously been a suspect in another homicide that occurred in January, but he had since been changed to a witness, and Alexander said Fisher’s previous affiliations with that case might play a role in his recent death. Further information on the January case was not immediately available. Fisher also was affiliated with local gangs, according to police.

Anyone with information on this event is urged to call the homicide unit at 301-772-4925, or if they wish to leave an anonymous tip they can call the Crime Solvers line at 866-411-8477, Alexander said.

Tips that lead to an arrest and indictment for murder are eligible for a cash reward of up to $25,000, he said.
