Murder USA: Two killers nabbed after shootout left Domanic Jamal Nelson dead
FORT WASHINGTON, MD. — Police say that three men who knew each other conducted a shoot-out in Fort Washington leaving one of them dead and another seeking treatment for bullet wounds. The wounded man and the other survivor were both charged with murder.
Prince George’s County Police Department Homicide Unit detectives charged two suspects in connection with Friday’s homicide in Fort Washington. They are 19-year-old Rashawd Wiggins of 3111 Martin Luther King Boulevard in the District and 18-year-old Derron Rashad Alexander of the 620 Audrey Lane in Oxon Hill. Both are charged by Detective Bunce with first degree murder as well as use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Alexander will appear in court for his first round to face a Judge on Aug. 26, 2015. Alexander was committed to the Prince Georges County jail, where at only 5’7 and 140 pounds, he will likely further his education in the ways of crime.
On July 31, 2015, at about 12:45 am, patrol officers were called to the 1000 block of Palmer Road for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found 22-year-old Domanic Jamal Nelson outside suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
Nelson, of 1911 Harwood Road in Capitol Heights, Md., was charged by Prince Georges Police Officer Dupree with malicious property destruction on July 11, 2015. Due to his murder, his court appearance set for Aug. 18th will be scrubbed.
The preliminary investigation reveals the victim and the two suspects were acquaintances. Preliminarily, detectives believe the suspects intended to rob the victim. During the robbery attempt, Wiggins and the victim exchanged gunfire. Both were shot. Nelson died of his injuries on the scene. Wiggins later sought medical treatment at a hospital. He’s currently in intensive care at an undisclosed hospital in the District. Alexander is in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
Wiggins, while young as far as the region’s many legions of criminals go, had already been set for trial in Prince Georges County Circuit Court after being indicted for multiple counts of burglary, conspiracy and malicious property destruction. Wiggins was indicted on Feb. 12, 2015 and arraigned in March. As is customary, the Maryland Public Defenders Office in the form of attorney Anthony Mayo, is providing free lawyer service for this alleged dirtbag and murderer. The Public Defender does not defend the public but instead defends criminals from prosecution for crimes generally committed against the public. But when the legislators dreamed up this system of justice for criminals they came up with this neat name which is designed to fool the public.
According to court records, Prince Georges County States Attorney Angela Alsobrooks has failed, on multiple times, to provide discovery to the defense, with the latest time on July 17, 2015.
Wiggins was charged with multiple counts of assault, use of a firearm in a robbery and commercial armed robbery on Feb. 5, 2013. In Prince Georges Circuit Court on Aug. 26, 2013, Wiggins was found guilty to Count # 7 (assault-second degree) in the slew of charges he faced. Wiggins was sentenced to 10 years in prison with all but 269 days suspended for which he was given credit for time served, meaning he skipped out of court free as a blue jay.
Alexander faced five counts in an indictment for burglary, conspiracy to burglarize, destruction and theft from an offence which took place on June 12, 2014. Alexander was given a gift from Prince Georges County States Attorney Angela Alsobrooks on July 17, 2015 when the prosecutor dropped all the charges. Generally such an action by a prosecutor is to either cover up for incompetence on the part of either the police or prosecutors in the handling of evidence or of missing deadlines for providing discovery to the defense. Other times charges are dropped as part of a deal where the accused provides critical evidence and or information to prosecutors to assist in locking up other killers and drug king-pins. The reasons for dropping charges are generally concealed from the public as this is a secretive business on the part of the criminals and the officials. Move on here, there is nothing to see.
