Woman Found Shot And Killed Inside Maryland Home

LANDOVER HILLS, Md. (AP/WJZ) — Police in Maryland are searching for possible suspects and a motive after a woman was found shot and killed inside a home.

The woman was pronounced dead Wednesday night inside the Landover Hills home, Prince George's County police said. The gunfire appeared to come from outside the home.


Officers say the wounded woman was unresponsive when officers arrived.

Police later identified her as 56-year-old Filomena Vasquez. According to police, suspect 23-year-old Sammie Warren, allegedly fired into the home after Vasquez's adult son denied him a refund for a car he purchased on Christmas Eve.

An SUV damaged by gunfire was towed from the house.
