FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (AP) - Prince George’s County police are identifying a woman and her 2-year-old daughter, who were found fatally shot near their Fort Washington home.

Police tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the victims in the double homicide are 26-year-old Neshante Davis and 2-year-old Chloe Davis-Green.

Police spokeswoman Julie Parker said at a news conference that officers were called to the 1300 block of Palmer Road around 7 a.m. Tuesday for the report of a shooting.

Parker says officers discovered Davis in the parking lot and her 2-year-old daughter in a nearby car, both with apparent gunshot wounds. She says Davis was pronounced dead at the scene and the toddler was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Interim police Chief Hank Stawinski says the crime “shocks the conscience.” He says police have “very viable investigative leads.”
