CAPITOL HEIGHTS, MD. — Police say that a District man has been murdered, adding to the mounting toll of gunshot murders piling up in the State of Maryland. The homicide toll once again shows that criminals will find a way to arm themselves in spite of Maryland’s strict gun laws.
The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a homicide in Capitol Heights. The victim is 22-year-old Davonn Terrell Fogg of 4419 F Street in Southeast Washington, D.C.
Police say that a reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this case.
On June 7, 2015, at about 9:15 pm, patrol officers were called to the Capitol Heights Metro Station. When they arrived, they found Fogg suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.
The investigation revealed Fogg had been shot in a car in the 5100 block of Southern Avenue. After the shooting, Fogg was driven to the Metro station to meet with paramedics. Preliminarily, detectives do not believe this was a random act. Investigators are working to identify the suspect(s) and motive in this case.
Fogg may have been meeting with associates in the business of trafficking narcotics. Maryland Court records reveal that he was charged with possession with the intent to distribute drugs on Jan. 6, 2014 and that Prince Georges County States Attorney Angela Alsobrooks dropped the charge on Jan. 31, 2014.
Also Alsobrooks dumped charges of theft, removal of property, carrying a handgun and possession of drugs on Jan. 22, 2015. These dropped charges are indicative that Fogg dropped the dime on some of his drug-dealing pals to police in order to escape charges which would have netted him at least ten years in prison. This possibility would be an excellent motive for murder.
A Prince Georges County Grand Jury indicted Fogg on the same charges on Feb. 18, 2014, according to court records. After several delays, trial on some of the charges were continued with some dropped on July 28, 2014. Fogg might still be alive if his delays had not been as effective and he was behind bars on June 7th.
