The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit arrested two suspects in connection with a fatal shooting one week ago in Oxon Hill. The suspects are 22-year-old Diare Caldwell of the 1400 block of Southern Avenue in Oxon Hill and 22-year-old Darin Moore, Jr., of the 6200 block of Gabriel Street in Bowie.

On November 5, 2015, at about 3:05 am, patrol officers were called to the 1400 block of Southern Avenue for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found the victim, 39-year-old Edson Keister of Bowie, suffering from gunshot wounds. He died a short time later at a hospital.

During the course of the investigation, Caldwell and Moore were developed as suspects. The preliminarily investigation reveals the fatal shooting stemmed from a robbery attempt during a drug deal. The suspects were arrested at Caldwell’s apartment earlier this week. They are both charged with first and second degree murder and related charges.
