A man who was about 18 years old was fatally shot in Temple Hills overnight, and witnesses told police that the incident stemmed from an attempted robbery.

A group of people was in the 5000 block of Temple Hills Road when a young male suspect approached them shortly after midnight and tried to rob at least one of them of shoes. A fight ensued, and during the altercation, a victim was shot, police spokeswoman Sgt. Sonya Rorls. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police found the suspect less than half-a-mile from the scene. The suspect, an 18-year-old man, is in custody but had not yet been charged as of late Monday morning, Rorls said.
