Suspect Arrested in Shooting Investigation of Toddler in Glenarden

Prince George’s County Maryland… The Prince George’s County Police Department’s District III Investigative Section has arrested Deven Angel Matos, 18, of the 1600 block of Thomas Road in Ft. Washington. Matos was wanted in connection with a shooting last weekend outside of an apartment complex in the Town of Glenarden, Maryland, which left a toddler in critical condition.

Deven Angel Matos, accompanied by his attorney, turned himself in to authorities at the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections yesterday evening at approximately 4:30 p.m. He has been charged with attempted second degree murder, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, and incarcerated on a $1,000,000 dollar bond.

On August 21, 2011, at approximately 9:15 p.m., patrol officers responded to the 3000 block of Brightseat Road for the report of a shooting. When the officers arrived, they found a boy, less than a month away from his 2nd birthday, suffering from a gunshot wound to the face. He was transported to a local hospital where he was admitted and remains in critical but stable condition.

The investigation revealed that Devin Angel Matos and another suspect began shooting in the apartment complex. A stray bullet fired by Matos struck the toddler as he was being held in his mother’s arms. Detectives identified Deven Angel Matos as a suspect in this case and obtained a warrant for his arrest.
