Police are investigating a second officer-involved shooting in Prince George’s County this week after an incident early Thursday morning.

The shooting happened as officers were investigating a report of a burglary in an apartment at 3107 Good Hope Road in Temple Hills, police spokeswoman Officer Iris Borrero said.

Police were called to the apartment around 3 a.m. Officers located a man they thought was a suspect, and at least one officer fired at the man. No one was struck, Officer Borrero said.

Officials could not confirm Thursday whether the man police encountered was taken into custody or not. More information was expected to be released Thursday afternoon.

The incident is the fourth police-involved shooting to come under investigation this year. Police said this week that one of the shootings may have been an accidental discharge and are no longer counting it as a departmental shooting.
