Detectives to Canvass Oxon Hill Community in Homicide Investigation

This afternoon, Prince George’s County Police Department Homicide Unit detectives plan to canvass an Oxon Hill community where a man was shot on Wednesday. The victim is 41-year-old Derrick Jermaine McCray. Preliminarily, detectives do not believe this was a random shooting. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.-

On January 27, 2016, at about 6:20 pm, patrol officers were called to the 5600 block of St. Barnabas Road for a shooting. When they arrived, they found the victim in the street suffering from gunshot wounds. He died several hours later at a hospital.

Investigators are working to identify the suspect(s) and the motive in this fatal shooting. This afternoon, detectives will pass out Crime Solvers flyers seeking information in this case. The canvass is scheduled to begin at 4:00 pm in the 5500 block of Rosecroft Village Drive.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Prince George's County Police Department's Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925.
