PGPD Investigates Domestic-Related Murder-Suicide in District Heights

Updated August 16, 2014: The suspect is identified as 45-year-old Leroy Johnson, Jr., of Iverson Street in Oxon Hill.  The victims are identified as 42-year-old Zonita Monia Roberts, of Springhill Parkway in Smyrna, Georgia, and 43-year-old Angela Lynette Johnson, of Iverson Street in Oxon Hill.  The suspect is the recently estranged husband of Johnson.

The Prince George's County Police Department is investigating a murder-suicide in District Heights.

On August 15, 2014, at approximately 4:40 pm, patrol officers were called to the 1500 block of Addison Road South for the report of a shooting.  Upon their arrival, patrol officers forced entry into the home in an effort to provide aid.  Inside, they found two women and a man suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.  One of the women was pronounced dead on the scene.  The surviving man and woman were taken to area hospitals where they both died a short time later.

Detectives believe the shootings are domestic related.  The preliminary investigation suggests the man shot both women before turning the weapon on himself.
