On March 23 at 8:17 p.m., officers responded to the 3300 block of Westdale Court, Waldorf, for the report of multiple shots fired. Upon entering the residence, officers located an adult male who was deceased. As officers further searched the townhome, they located a young female child who was also deceased, and two additional females, one who appeared to be a teenager and one adult, suffering from gunshot wounds. Both the teenage and adult females were flown out to an area hospital in critical condition. Officers also located a gun near the deceased man. This appears to be a domestic-related incident.
