A man shot in Lanham in 2016 died earlier this year. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner later ruled his death a homicide. The victim is 18-year-old Ki Johnson of Laurel Park Drive in Laurel. Detectives have strong leads in this case. They do not believe this was a random crime.
The preliminary investigation reveals the victim was shot in the 9900 block of Greenbelt Road during an argument with another man on February 29, 2016. On October 10, 2017, Johnson went to the hospital for breathing issues. He died later that day. In February of 2018, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled Johnson's death was a result of the injuries he suffered from the gunshot wounds and the manner of death was homicide. At that time, the Homicide Unit took over the investigation.
