The shooting took place in the 3300 block of Westdale Court, according to officials. It is believed that is took place around 8:17 p.m. Police say officers found four people suffering from gunshot wounds inside a townhouse.
“We have investigators actively canvassing the neighborhood and trying to contact any relatives of the victims to try to determine what exactly happened,” said Charles County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Diane Richardson. “We know that when officers arrived, when they entered the townhouse, they did find one adult male. He was deceased and there was a gun lying beside him. We are looking into the possibility that he was indeed the gunman in this case. There were three other people injured at that time. One was a juvenile female believed to be in her teens, a toddler who was deceased on the scene and then an adult female.”
WTOP news anchor Mike Murillo is reporting that the child and the gunman have both been killed while two women are en route to hospitals.


The toddler was believed to be two or three years old.
