A 22-year-old Oxon Hill man was fatally shot Sunday morning in what Prince George’s County police are calling a domestic dispute.

Jerome Zephier Peters was found suffering from gunshot wounds at about 1:15 a.m. by police responding to reports of a shooting in the 2900 block of St. Clair Drive.

Police said Mr. Peters was taking care of his young child at the home, which belongs to a family member. The child’s mother and a male acquaintance arrived to pick up the child. The two men began arguing and at some point, police said, Mr. Peter’s was shot.

Officers were still looking for the suspect Sunday afternoon.
