The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested two suspects for the murder of 23-year-old Michael Nolan Brown of Seat Pleasant. The suspects are identified as 16-year-old Raphael Chad Mwilima of the 3200 block of Weeping Willow Court in Silver Spring and 19-year-old Daquan Marquis Douglas of the 7700 block of Willow Drive in Seat Pleasant. Mwilima is being charged as an adult. Detectives are seeking the public's help identifying a third suspect in the murder.
On May 14, 2013, at approximately 10:30 pm, patrol officers responded to the 600 block of Cabin Branch Drive for a shooting. Upon arrival, patrol officers found Brown unresponsive inside of his home. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation reveals three suspects entered the home at gunpoint and demanded money. A confrontation ensued, during which Brown was fatally shot. Robbery is the motive.
Douglas turned himself in to PGPD detectives on May 23, 2013. Mwilima was arrested at his Silver Spring home on May 20, 2013. Both suspects are charged with first degree murder, armed robbery and other charges. They are in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
