Police say a Smyrna woman was killed after a Maryland man shot her and his estranged wife in District Heights before fatally shooting himself.

On Saturday morning, Prince George’s County police identified the victims of the murder-suicide as 45-year-old Leroy Johnson of Oxon Hill, Md.; his wife, 43-year-old Angela Johnson of Oxon Hill; and 42-year-old Zonita Roberts of Smyrna.

Police were called to the home where the shooting took place at about 4:40 p.m. on Friday. Officers forced their way into the home and found one woman dead and a woman and a man suffering from gunshot wounds. The surviving victims were taken to a hospital, where they died.

Police say a preliminary investigation indicates Leroy Johnson shot both his wife and Roberts and then shot himself. Police described Roberts as an acquaintance of Angela Johnson.
