The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested the suspect wanted in connection with last Friday’s homicide in Glenn Dale. The suspect is 17-year-old Chet Markland Jarrett Jr. His last known address is the 100 block of B Street in Lothian, MD.
On August 21, 2015, at about 9:55 pm, patrol officers responded to the 4300 block of Rockport Lane for a welfare check. When they arrived, they found 17-year-old Jajuan Mcrae outside suffering from gunshot wounds. He died a short time later at a hospital.
Preliminarily, detectives believe the homicide stemmed from an ongoing dispute between the suspect and the victim. The two teenagers got into a fight which escalated into the fatal shooting.
Officers located and arrested Jarrett on Wednesday. He is charged with first degree murder and is in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
