Waldorf man, and teenager charged in “gunshots” case

: On January 4 at 1:30 a.m., officers were in the area of St. Charles Parkway and Gateview Place in Waldorf handling a traffic crash when they heard gunshots. Officers responded to the area where they heard the shots and discovered fresh footprints in the snow. At the same time, a citizen called 9-1-1, reported hearing gunshots, and saw two male suspects in the area. The citizen took a picture of the suspects and provided a description to officers.

Officers followed the footprints, which led to a nearby house. Two males matching the description of the suspects were located inside. A search warrant was obtained, and officers located two handguns with ammunition matching the evidence recovered from the area where the shots were fired.

In addition, 62 baggies of marijuana and drug distribution materials were also recovered. Kavon Desales Dorsey, 24, of Waldorf, was charged with reckless endangerment, first-degree assault, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession with intent to distribute illegal drugs, and other related charges.

A 15-year-old male was also charged in this case.  PFC S. Hooper is investigating

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
