COLLEGE PARK - A man was fatally shot yesterday morning during a struggle with another man on a College Park bicycle trail near U.S. 1, Prince George's County police said.

About 10:15 a.m., county police received a 911 call from a person reporting hearing a gunshot on the trail near a wooded area and behind townhouses on Berwyn House Road, said Officer Debbi Sabel, a police spokeswoman.

Lamont Whitted, 26, a town resident, was found bleeding from a chest wound and died soon after at Prince George's Hospital Center, she said.

Police were questioning several people who saw a man fleeing, but had made no arrest.

A University of Maryland police bulletin said Whitted was not a student or employee there.
