Alex James Jones
The Prince George’s County Police Department made a quick arrest in Monday’s homicide in Seabrook. The suspect is 31-year-old Alex James Jones of the 6000 block of Carter Avenue in Lanham. The victim is 24-year-old Douglas Napoleon Reyes of 100th Avenue in Seabrook.
On December 28, 2015, at about 3:45 pm, patrol officers were called to a school in the 6700 block of 97th Avenue for a stabbing. When they arrived, they found Reyes outside near the basketball court suffering from stab wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
An officer responding to the scene spotted Jones a short distance away and took him into custody. The preliminary investigation reveals the victim and suspect had gone separately to the basketball court. The victim was sitting on a bench near the court when he was approached by the suspect. The suspect confronted the victim before stabbing him several times in what appears to be an unprovoked attack. The suspect then ran from the area. The victim and suspect did not know each other.
Jones is charged with first and second degree murder. He’s in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
