Suspect in Custody in Lanham Homicide

The Prince George’s County Police Department's Homicide Unit has charged a suspect in connection with Friday's homicide in Lanham.  The suspect is 24-year-old Gregorio Davidson of the 7000 block of Highview Terrace in Hyattsville. The victim is 27-year-old Kendal Joseph of Lewisdale Drive in Hyattsville.

On January 22, 2016, at about 4:30 am, patrol officers were called to the 4900 block of Whitfield Chapel Road for the report of an assault. When they arrived, patrol officers found Joseph suffering from stab wounds. He died a short time later at a hospital. 

The preliminary investigation reveals the victim and suspect got into an argument that escalated into the fatal stabbing. The suspect and two other victims were also injured during the altercation. The two victims suffered what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.
