PGPD Investigates Death of Man During Check on Welfare Call

On Sunday, August 18th, at 5:30 am, a ride share driver traveling along the 1400 block of Kings Manor Drive in an unincorporated area of Bowie.  The driver reported that a naked male was knocking on doors of homes on the street.  The driver advised that the unknown male appeared to be under the influence of “something.” The driver reported the man had stopped on the porch of one house. The homeowner was out of town, but her doorbell surveillance system alerted her to the man’s presence.  She attempted to speak with the unknown man through the doorbell system, but he was incoherent. Two Prince George’s County police officers were dispatched to do a check on the welfare.



Preliminarily, when the two officers arrived at the house, they observed a man outside who was wearing only underwear and socks sitting in the doorway of the home.  The man remained on the ground but was moving around erratically.  Officers spoke with him and tried to calm him down.  As the ambulance arrived, the man became agitated, officers placed him in handcuffs and he was immediately taken to the ambulance for evaluation.



Preliminarily, medics were in the process of taking his vitals and tending to him for about 20 minutes when the man went into acute distress.   Medics asked the officers to remove his handcuffs and medics performed CPR for an extended period of time to no avail. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The decedent is identified 38-year-old Kevin Antonio Jessie of Kings Manor Drive in the unincorporated area of Bowie.

An autopsy is expected to be performed on Monday to determine cause and manner of death.  As a matter of standard operating procedure, the Special Investigative Response Team of our Internal Affairs Division is investigating the circumstances surrounding the event.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the Special Investigative Response team at 301-856-2660.

Detectives Arrest Two Men in Connection with Suitland Homicide

Tavone Hoes

Gregory Sam

Homicide Unit detectives arrested and charged two men in connection with a fatal shooting in Suitland earlier this month. They are 26-year-old Tavone Hoes of the 4300 block of 3rd Street in Southeast, Washington DC and 25-year-old Gregory Sam of the 1500 block of Alabama Avenue in Southeast, Washington DC. They’re charged with the fatal shooting of 24-year-old Mshairi Alkebular Jr., of Southeast Washington.

On August 5th, at approximately 1:15 pm, patrol officers responded to the report of a large fight in the 5600 block of Suitland Road. The officers encountered a large group of people who had just attended a funeral service at a church in a strip mall at that location. The funeral had been held for a victim of a homicide in the District of Columbia. As officers were attempting to diffuse the fight, they heard gunshots nearby. Officers responded one block away to the 5800 block of Suitland Road and discovered Alkebular next to a car suffering from a gunshot wound. He died later that evening.

The preliminary investigation reveals Alkebular attended the funeral. Following the service, he and group began to leave the area. The suspects followed behind and when they were close enough, Hoes shot into the victim’s car. Occupants in the victim’s car did return fire, striking Hoes in the arm. A short time later, Hoes walked into a local hospital for treatment. Sam, who was driving the suspect vehicle, was not hurt.

Hoes remains hospitalized in the District of Columbia where Sam is also in custody. Both are awaiting extradition to Prince George’s County.

Homicide detectives determined the motive in this case was an on-going feud between two groups who live in Washington DC. Hoes and Sam are charged with first degree murder and related charges.

If anyone has information relevant to this investigation, they are asked to please call detectives 301-772-4925.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), or go online at www.pgcrimesolvers.com, or use the “P3 Tips” mobile app (search “P3 Tips” in the Apple Store or Google Play to download the app onto your mobile device.)
