Prince George's County Police are still looking for the person who shot and killed a Capitol Heights man in his backyard following a July 31 card game.

Police arrived about 8:51 p.m. to the 100 block of East Mill Avenue July 31 to find Paul Trevon Blackwell, 26, of the same address suffering from multiple upper body gunshot wounds. Blackwell died about 1:30 a.m. Friday from his injuries at a local hospital. Cpl. Stephen Pacheco, a county police spokesman, said police believe robbery is the motive.

No one has been arrested and Pacheco did not have an exact number of how many people attended the card game. The case is still under investigation and police ask residents with information to call the county's Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925 or Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS to remain anonymous.
