OXON HILL, Md. — Police are investigating after a 28-year-old man was fatally stabbed outside of an Oxon Hill Popeyes store on Monday night.

Prince George’s County Police said they were called to the 6200 block of Livingston Rd. around 7 p.m. on Monday night, where they found a man with a stab wound in the parking lot.  In a press conference on Tuesday, PGPD stated that the incident occurred around 7 p.m., after one man worked his way through the front of line of customers waiting for service.

Once towards the front of the line, a confrontation occurred with another man waiting for service.

Within 15 seconds, the argument was taken outside to the parking lot and the man who worked his way through the front of the line was stabbed.

“How does a confrontation lead to a homicide in 15 seconds?” PGPD Police Chief Hank Stawinski said.

Authorities say their preliminary findings deduct that one man cut in front of the other, prompting the argument.

“This is pointless,” Stawinski said. “This is disrespectful.”

The victim was then taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries, which he later succumbed to about an hour later. Police identified the suspect as 28-year-old Kevin Davis of Oxon Hill.

“Again, what I think people are responding to and something I think we need to question how we are interacting with one another in society is how does a confrontation over cutting in line lead to death?” Stawinski said.

Stawinski said there were two children in proximity to the individuals, but police aren’t sure of the relationship.

Police said the suspect is believed to have fled in a vehicle.

In a press conference Monday night, PGPD spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said detectives are hard at work on finding the suspect, who they urge to turn himself in.

“For that type of anger and to develop to this level of violence is a sad and tragic day, and this person needs to turn themselves in,” Donelan said.
