Surveillance Video Shows Drive-By Shooting That Wounded 12-Year-Old Maryland Girl

CAPITOL HEIGHTS, Md. (WJZ) -- Police released surveillance footage Thursday in hopes the public can help identify a suspect who shot a 12-year-old girl in Capitol Heights last week.

The drive-by shooting happened about 6:35 p.m. Friday in the 5200 block of Marlboro Pike, injuring a girl who was waiting for food inside a nearby restaurant, according to Prince George's County Police.

Police said the 12-year-old victim, who is not believed to be the shooter's intended target, was rushed to an area hospital where she's listed in critical condition.

The 41-second clip shows someone wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt standing out of the sunroof of a dark-colored sedan, opening fire toward businesses in a strip mall.

The shooter's vehicle, described as possibly an Infiniti with tinted windows and chrome trim, was last seen heading toward Brooks Drive, police said.

Police are offering a reward of up to $2,500 for credible tips that lead to an arrest in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 301-516-200. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
