Two men sought in bar shooting
Question of the Day
Prince George's County police continued to search yesterday for two suspects in connection with a restaurant shooting during the Super Bowl that killed three young men.
The shooting occurred Sunday at about 9:15 p.m. at the Uno’s Chicago Grill in the 1100 block of Shoppers Way in Largo.
The restaurant was filled with about 75 customers. Witnesses said the first shots were fired at about the time the grill’s TV screens showed the New York Giants scoring a late touchdown in their 17-14 upset of the New England Patriots.
Witnesses said the dispute escalated from an argument to a fistfight, before one of the suspects pulled a pistol and fired shots that hit two of the victims in the upper body.
Police said they continued to ask witnesses yesterday about what caused the dispute but still had no answer.
“There was some sort of fight before shots were fired,” said Officer Henry Tippett, a department spokesman.
Police identified the victims as Terrance Lynne Sneed, 22, of Hyattsville, who died in the bar; Curtis Lee Poston, 26, of Temple Hills; and Charles Dontee Harrison, 25, of Landover. Mr. Poston and Mr. Harrison died at Prince George’s Hospital Center.
“They weren’t able to talk before they died,” Officer Tippett said.
The gunman and his companion purportedly followed Mr. Harrison out of the grill and into the parking lot, where he was fatally wounded before the suspects drove away in a red Dodge Charger.
Witnesses described the suspects as black men in their 20s. One man had a light complexion and his hair in dreadlocks. The other had a dark complexion and was heavyset.
The grill is part of a retail complex that replaced the former Capital Centre sports arena. It is outside the Capital Beltway, about one mile east of FedEx Field.
Police ask anyone with information about the shootings to call the homicide unit at 301/772-4925. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 866/411-TIPS (8477). Prince George's County police are offering a reward of up to $25,000 for a tip that leads to the arrest and indictment of a suspect.
