MURDER USA: Joanne Woods shot dead, four men wounded keep the meat wagons rolling!
MURDER USA Woman shot dead, four men wounded in drive-by shooting
FORESTVILLE – Those killing kind were busy again in PG County early in the morning on April 26, 2016, trying to keep up with their killing cousins in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Md. A drive-by killer blasted one woman to ‘Kingdom Come’ and nailed four guys, all of whom were standing around in a parking lot – as if none of them had to worry about getting up in the morning to go to a job.
Prince Georges County Police reports that about 1:30 am, officers arrived on the scene of the shooting at the 6500 block of Hil-Mar Drive with a woman suffering from “gunshot wounds”. She didn’t suffer long, as police immediately reported she was dead. Four men found at the residence were wounded in the gunfire and police report they are trying to sort out the winners and losers as they develop suspects.
The victim is 49-year-old Joanne Woods of Mason Street in District Heights, Md. Preliminarily, and, hold on to your bat-phones, but detectives do not believe this was a random act. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.
Police say that the preliminary investigation reveals the victims were standing outside when they were shot by a suspect who was in a car. That car then sped from the area.
The possibility that the murder and extra shootings could be drug related only could be considered when realizing that this event took place in what federal officials have designated a high-crime drug trafficking area, which includes virtually of Prince Georges County (PG – Pretty Gory).
The body count may increase as Police say that of the four men shot, one is critical.
Woods, of 7607 Mason Street in District Heights, Md., was charged with resisting arrest and theft on Oct. 6, 2015, by Prince Georges County Police Officers Lucas and Campbell. On March 4, 2016, Prince Georges County States Attorney Angela Alsobrooks dropped the charges. While Woods collected a couple of dozen traffic tickets for reckless driving, speeding at 102 mph and failing to have insurance, tags or permit – the remarkable aspect of her record was that all charges were always dropped. Thus, it could be she was always dropping the dime on drug dealers to prosecutors. A drive-by shooting is a standard tool used by drug dealers to wipe out competitors and to deal with snitches.
