PGPD Investigates Double Homicide in Oxon Hill

The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a double homicide in Oxon Hill. The victims are 24-year-old Deangelo Green of Town Farm Road in Upper Marlboro and 35-year-old Rashard Jackson of Alydar Court in Bowie. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this case.

On May 15, 2015, at about 11:55 pm, patrol officers were called to the 700 block of Audrey Lane for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found Green outside suffering from gunshot wounds. He died at a hospital a short time later. Officers located the second victim, Jackson, behind a nearby apartment building. He had also been shot and was pronounced dead at the scene. Preliminarily, it appears he ran after being shot and collapsed behind the building. 

The investigation reveals the two victims were standing outside when they were shot. Preliminarily, detectives do not believe this was a random act. Investigators are working to identify the suspect(s) and motive in this case.
