The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested the suspect wanted in connection with Tuesday’s murder in Bowie. Our fugitive squad tracked down 19-year-old Deon Eugene Warren late last night at a motel in Anne Arundel County.
Homicide unit detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Warren charging him with first degree murder in the fatal shooting of 39-year-old Mitchell White of Bowie.
On September 30, 2014, at about 5:35 pm, Bowie Police Department officers were called to the 12700 block of Midwood Lane for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found White suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation reveals White was shot as he tried to break up a fight among a group of teenagers in the parking lot.
Warren is in the custody of the Department of Correction on a no bond status.
