Two men were shot in separate incidents in Southeast D.C. and Landover Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

The shooting in the District occurred at 2:30 p.m. in the 1200 block of Sumner Road in the Barry Farm neighborhood, just a few blocks from the location where a teenager was shot Sunday night.

The shooting victim told authorities he did not know the man who shot him, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Hugh Carew said. He was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Police described the shooter as a black man in his late teens or early 20s with no facial hair, wearing a white shirt, red shorts and a black stocking cap, Officer Carew said.

Close to the same time as the shooting in the District, a cab driver was shot in Landover during an attempted robbery, according to Prince George’s County police.

The shooting was reported around 2:11 p.m. near the intersection of Cooper Lane and Annapolis Road, Prince George’s County police spokesman Cpl. Larry Johnson said. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

No further information was immediately available in either of the cases.
