A shooter opened fire in the area of Silver Hill Road and Suitland Parkway in Prince George's County on Tuesday morning, police say. The suspect is currently on the loose.

One person was taken a nearby trauma center in critical condition, NBC Washington reports. A witness told NBC the victim was shot two or three times and also had a gun. (An earlier version of this story said two were hurt, but police have only confirmed one victim.)

Two witnesses told NBC they saw a man shooting a gun as he sat in the passenger side of a car. 

Suitland Parkway is closed in both directions from Suitland Road to Branch Ave as police investigate and search for the suspect.

This is a developing story. Check back as more details become available.
