A Fort Washington man has been cleared as a suspect in the slayings of his wife and son, who were found dead early Thursday in their home, according to Prince George’s County police.

Frank Harris was released from police custody Thursday evening after he was interviewed by Prince George’s County police in connection with the fatal shootings of his wife, Patricia Harris, 56, and son, Frank Lamar Harris, 20, said county police spokesman Cpl. Evan Baxter.

The elder Mr. Harris called police to his home, in the 11800 block of Hickory Drive, around 4:30 a.m. Thursday after he said he came home from work to find his wife and son suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, police said. There was no sign of forced entry into the home, police said.

Investigators are continuing work to develop a suspect in the case.

Neighbor Monique Harris, 20, a friend of the younger Frank Harris, said police were back canvassing the neighborhood Friday asking about a teenager seen riding a bicycle in the area that night.

Police spokeswoman Julie Parker said she could not comment further on the investigation.
