OXON HILL — Firefighters say an electrical shock has injured two people at a Maryland resort near Washington, D.C.

Prince George’s County fire department spokesman Mark Brady tweeted that the two were shocked on Tuesday, shortly before midnight, at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill. He says both were taken to hospitals.
