Homicide Unit detectives charged two suspects in connection with a homicide in Lanham on Tuesday. The suspects are 44-year-old Dorian Ragland of the 800 block of Sledgehammer Dive in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and 29 year-old Christopher Foxworth of Wild Turkey Drive in Stafford, VA. They’re charged in connection with the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Thomas Baldwin of Farrell Lane in Fredericksburg, VA.
On January 8th, at approximately 7:15 am, patrol officers were called to the 5700 block of Lundy Drive for a welfare check. Baldwin was located in the backyard of a home suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation reveals the victim and suspects knew each other and travelled together from Virginia to Prince George’s County the day of the murder. The motive for the fatal shooting remains under investigation.
Ragland and Foxworth are both charged with first and second degree murder and related charges. They are currently being held in the District of Columbia and are awaiting extradition to Prince George’s County.
