Homicide Unit detectives are asking for the community’s assistance in identifying two homicide suspects. The suspects were captured on surveillance video as one of them pulled out a gun and began shooting at two victims. One of the victims was killed, the other was wounded. This took place Sunday evening in Oxon Hill.
On May 20th, at approximately 7:25 pm, patrol officers responded to the 5600 block of Saint Barnabas Road for the report of a shooting. Officers discovered 28-year-old Rodney Snowden of Greenbelt suffering from gunshot wounds. He died later at a hospital. The second victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.
On the surveillance video, the two suspects are seen walking into the parking lot toward the two victims. The victims attempt to run away from the suspects when one of the suspects pulls out a gun and starts firing. “One of the suspects is wearing a distinctive shirt. Perhaps a resident saw someone wearing that shirt on Sunday. Or maybe someone recognizes how one of the suspects walks. Any piece of information is welcome. We are actively working to arrest these suspects who carried out this brazen crime,” said Captain Rob Harvin of the Criminal Investigation Division.
A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and indictment.
