Two Suspects in Custody in Fort Washington Homicide

Derron Rashad Alexander


Rashawd Akilly Wiggins




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 the 3100 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard in the District and 18-year-old Derron Alexander of the 7500 block of Abbington Drive in Oxon Hill. Both are charged with first degree murder.

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.

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 a hospital in the District. Alexander is in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
