MURDER USA / PG Cops Wondering Where the Killers Went; Double Dose of Lead Poisoning Faulted for Increasing Homicide Tally by Two
One less burglary suspect in PG court system as Anthony Douglas collected lead in alley
SUITLAND, MD. – Now PG Cops are talking to anyone who can help them finger the killer or killers of two PG County men on July 9, 2017.
Homicide Unit detectives are working to find the suspect(s) who fatally shot two men Sunday in Suitland. The victims are 22-year-old Courtney Simms of 4203 23rd Parkway in Temple Hills and 23-year-old Anthony Douglas of 28th Avenue in Marlow Heights. A cash reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.
On July 9th, at about 7:20 pm, patrol officers responded to the 4600 block of Silver Hill Road for the report of a double shooting. Two Prince George’s Police Officers were nearby and responded within minutes, deploying their department-issued trauma kits. Simms was pronounced dead on the scene. Douglas was taken to the hospital in critical condition where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The preliminary investigation reveals the two victims were shot outside in an alleyway between two businesses.

Simms was charged by PG Police Cpl. R. Jackson with trespassing on private property on May 10, 2017, perhaps leaving open another act of trespassing resulting in his termination.
His elimination by gunfire might be due to his career choice and will result in the loss of a client for the taxpayer-provided public defender.
Douglas was also charged with motor vehicle theft, theft of more than $1,000 and three counts of burglary, on Aug. 30, 2016, and was recently arraigned in PG Circuit Court and indicted by a Grand Jury on April 13, 2017. His elimination by gunfire might be due to his career choice and will result in the loss of a client for the taxpayer-provided public defender. Had Douglas been denied bail due to being a dirtbag, he would still be alive today.
