Football player allegedly shot teammates, self after argument
A month after the Frederick Douglass High School football team won the state 2A championships and three days after it was honored by the Prince George’s County school board, a team member allegedly shot and wounded two other players and himself.
Delano Dunmore, 16, has been charged as an adult with attempted first-degree and second-degree murder, according to Prince George’s County police.
Investigators believe an argument erupted in Dunmore’s Clinton home Sunday afternoon and officers arrived at the scene around 4 p.m. to find the three teams members suffering from gunshot wounds, police said. The victims, whose names have not been released, are 16 and 17 years old and one of them is at a local hospital in critical condition, police said.
Sherrie Johnson, a spokeswoman for the county school system, said extra counselors will be available to any Frederick Douglass student who would like support processing through the incident.
