2 critically injured, 4 others hurt in series of stabbings, hit-and-run crashes, Prince George’s Co. police say

A woman is in custody after being considered a person of interest in a series of stabbings and hit-and-run crashes that left at least six people injured, some of them critically, on Thursday evening, according to police in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

The series of violent crimes, that appear to be random, took place Thursday evening over a span of around an hour and a half in Capitol Heights and Lanham, police said. She was in police custody as of 11:30 p.m.

Deputy Police Chief James McCreary said during a news conference two people are critically injured — a teenager who was struck during a hit-and-run crash and then stabbed, as well as a man who was wounded at a gas station during a separate attack. Four others were injured during hit-and-run crashes but are expected to survive.

Before she was taken into custody, the department shared a photo of the person of interest who police described as “a woman who is driving a dark-colored sedan.”
