DISTRICT HEIGHTS, MD. Keeping the moniker of “Pretty Gory County” alive, the toll of the murdered victims in that suburban Washington D.C. county continues to mount in 2014. This is the county that Maryland officials heralded earlier this year as being on the decline in violent crime. Somebody forgot to tell the dirtbags.
The only bright spot is that the Prince Georges Police have been racking up significant arrests including three bozos charged with the murder of Tommie Lewis Moore Jr. on Dec. 4, 2014.
The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit arrested three suspects in connection with a homicide in District Heights on Thursday. The victim is 36-year-old Tommie Lewis Moore Jr., of Gateway Boulevard in District Heights. The suspects are 23-year-old Jaron Darius Kent and 28-year-old Ronald Kent, both of the 2700 block of Langston Place in Southeast Washington, and 28-year-old Roberto Miles of the 6600 block of Atwood Street in District Heights.
Police say that on December 4, 2014, at about 1:30 am, patrol officers with the District Heights Police Department and the Prince George’s County Police Department were called to the 6300 block of Gateway Boulevard for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found Moore suffering from gunshot wounds inside his home. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation reveals the victim was shot during a targeted residential robbery.
The suspects are charged with first degree murder and are in custody at the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
