Police in Prince George's County, Maryland say four people were intentionally hit by a car early this morning in Chillum.

Two people are in the hospital with serious injuries, police say, after four adults were hit by a car around 3.a.m. this morning at a shopping center on University Parkway.

Officer Evan Baxter says the injuries are not life threatening, adding investigators believe this is a domestic incident.

"They're still trying to establish what exactly the relationship is between our suspect and victim," says Baxter.

Baxter says the driver was apprehended shortly after the crash and he says charges are pending.
