August 21, 1991

A 20-year-old man in Takoma Park and a teen-ager in Temple Hills were shot to death Monday after arguments, Prince George's County police said yesterday.

Brian Grant, 20, was shot three times about 10:20 p.m. Monday after a dispute with another man in a parking lot in the 6700 block of New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park. Mr. Grant, of Hyattsville, was pronounced dead at Washington Adventist Hospital.

Lester Craig, 19, also of Hyattsville, was arrested by an off-duty sheriff's deputy shortly after the shooting and charged with first-degree murder. He was being held without bail last night at the Prince George's County Detention Center.

Shortly before 11 p.m. Monday, Kareem Lendsay, 17, was shot in the back during a confrontation between two groups of teen-agers in the 3200 block of Dallas Drive near his home in Temple Hills. He was pronounced dead shortly afterward at Prince George's Hospital Center.
