The Prince George’s County Police Department charged a man for the 2008 murder of 21-year-old Phillip Michael Harley of Fort Washington. The suspect is identified as 25-year-old Maurice Braswell of the 3900 block of 26th Avenue in Temple Hills.
On June 13, 2008 at approximately 10:50 pm, patrol officers were called to a home in the 6300 block of Arwen Court in Fort Washington for a shooting. Upon arrival, patrol officers found Harley suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He died of his injuries at a hospital.
Harley and Braswell were both attending a party at the home on Arwen Court. The investigation suggests the shooting stemmed from an earlier dispute between the two men.
