Suspect Charged With Killing His Uncle in Custody

Osman Kalokoh

The suspect charged with killing his uncle inside of the uncle’s Lanham home on Sunday is now in custody. The suspect, 20-year-old Osman Kalokoh, was arrested this morning in Baltimore.

Our detectives learned, at approximately 2:50 am, a man drove himself to MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital in Baltimore on a golf cart.  Preliminary, we understand the man was refusing to provide any information as to who he was.  Baltimore Police officers were called in to assist and responded to the hospital.  One of the officers was able to determine the man was Osman Kalokoh and he was wanted in Prince George’s County for homicide. The officer took him into custody.

On Sunday, March 17th, at approximately 2:55 am, Prince George’s County Police patrol officers were called to a home in the 9000 block of Alcona Street in Lanham for a shooting. Officers located two victims, an adult male and an adult female. The male victim, 69-year-old Alee Calokoh, was pronounced dead on the scene. The female victim suffered what appear to be non-life threatening injuries. 

The preliminary investigation reveals the suspect got into an argument with his uncle prior to shooting both victims. He’s charged with first degree murder, attempted murder and related charges. Kalokoh remains in custody in Baltimore.
