NEWBURG, MD. — “Here are the Killers who killed my son Mason. May they rot in Hell for Eternity.” That was the statement that Tammy Tanner Atkins posted on the Justice for Mason Facebook page on Oct. 11, 2016, as well as on her murdered son’s Facebook page. Tammy Atkins added this statement on Facebook: “Thank you GOD and Detective Shankster and all of the Charles County Sheriff’s Department. THEY GOT THEM! ! ! Praise the Lord. I love you Mason with all my heart.”
Steve Loiacono posted the message, “Angry at murderers that killed Mason!”
Tony Hooper posted “May you rot in hell.”

“Evil! These are the ones that took my Mason away from me!” stated Paul Loiacono.
“One week ago from this moment my life changed and it will never be the same,” stated Michael Loiacono. “Miss you so much. Just waiting for you to walk through the door. Mason Atkins, they stole your future and made a hole in my family that will never be filled. Love you brother, you will never be forgotten.”

The postings were added along with a news report from NBC4 Washington reporter Pat Collins, of the arrest of the four teens charged with the murder as well as a press release by the Charles County Sheriff’s Department.

How did the detectives track down the killers?

Good, old-fashioned police work on the part of the detectives. Police spokeswoman Diane Richardson told NBC 4 that the detectives pondered out to find the killers who fled in the dark from a dark country road after firing multiple rounds of gunfire into another vehicle. The victims, who had come under physical assault from the car load of alleged killers, had discharged pepper spray at their assailants. The detectives tracked down videos from nearby stores and found two which showed the suspects buying bottled water at a gas station and then the two men arrested washing their eyes out in the parking lot. The cops then knew they had a lead to pursue, which led to the arrests.

Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry reports that on October 11, 2016, members of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division arrested four people in connection with the Sept. 25, 2016, murder of Mason Cameron Atkins, 18, of Deale, Md.
A preliminary investigation showed Atkins, from Anne Arundel County, and several friends learned of an outdoor party on Mona Farm Place in La Plata and showed up uninvited.

The location of the outdoor party was a short distance from Rt. 301 near the Charles County Fairgrounds, on a rural road leading to Mona Farm.

One of the suspects pulled a handgun and fired several shots into the car, striking Atkins and his friend.

Police say that when they pulled up to the driveway where the party was being held, they were asked to leave – which they did. They drove about a half mile, heading toward the main highway when they stopped their vehicle on the side of the road.

Police say that the suspects, who were also asked to leave the area, drove by the victims and an argument ensued between the two groups. During the argument, the suspects began hitting the victims who then sprayed the suspects with pepper spray to get them away. One of the suspects pulled a handgun and fired several shots into the car, striking Atkins and his friend. The suspects fled and the victims drove to Popes Creek Road in Newburg where they called 911.

Atkins was pronounced deceased on the scene and the other victim survived. Detectives pursued leads and recovered critical evidence subsequently linking the suspects to the shooting. Investigators also served several search warrants and recovered a gun which will be examined to determine if it was the same gun used in the shooting.

After conferring with the Charles County State’s Attorney Anthony Covington, Tyreq Kaylin Tilghman,18; Kevin Averell Jones, 18; Talivah Laraiah Salahuddin, 17; and Shanya Imari Milstead, 17, all of Waldorf, were charged with first-degree murder. The juveniles were charged as adults. All four suspects are being held at the Charles County Detention Center with no bond.
Tilghman, of 4055 Parker Court, Waldorf, Md., was first charged with possession of a deadly weapon by Charles County Sheriff’s Officer B. Morrison on Oct. 6, 2016. That arrest may have triggered the other three arrests. Tilghman was charged with six counts of murder and assault on Oct. 12, 2016, by Charles County Sheriff’s Officer R. Shankster.
Salahuddin, of 3472 Maddox Court, Waldorf, Md., was also charged six counts of assault and murder and faces a preliminary hearing in Charles County District Court on Oct. 26, 2016.

Natalie Abell: We need the death penalty back. Cause they will sit in prison for life (probably not because they will get off with a few years) and we will pay for their 3 meals a day, schooling, medical treatment and whatever else they need while this young man’s family grieves every day. They don’t get their son back. Yet these POS keeping on living.

Kim Marshall: If it was four whites that killed a black guy…..it would have went wild in the press

Cindy Bailey Parks: They should all sit in prison for life

Misse Collins: Maryland needs to bring back the death penalty
