A 14-year-old Lewisdale boy was killed and a man was injured in a double shooting in Prince George's County that police believe was gang-related.

About 12:10 a.m. Wednesday, police went to the 2200 block of Sheridan Street and found shooting victims outside. Eliezer Benjamin Reyes was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died. The other victim, a man, was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

According to a preliminary investigation, the two victims were walking down the street with two other people when shots were fired at them from a vehicle. Two people in the group are documented gang members, but a police spokeswoman would not say which ones are gang members and what gang they belong to.

The suspect vehicle has been recovered, and police are working to come up with suspects and a motive in the shooting.
