Prince George's County police say a man was killed in Hyattsville Saturday morning, the eighth slaying in the county this year.

The man was found in an apartment complex parking lot on the 1400 block of University Boulevard when officers responded to a report of a cutting at about 8 a.m.

The man was taken to a hospital with trauma injuries and died a short time later, police said.

Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a police spokesman, said detectives would investigate whether the killing is linked to any of the other seven homicides recorded in the county this year, but so far no connections have been made.
