Prince George’s County Police Homicide Unit detectives obtained arrest warrants and are actively searching for two suspects in connection with the fatal shooting of a teenager on Monday. Those suspects are 22-year-old Tyrell McArthur of the 2900 block of 23rd Parkway in Temple Hills and 22-year-old Rayshawn Williams of no fixed address. Detectives are also actively working to identify and arrest a third suspect in the case.
On August 6th, at approximately 7:05 pm, patrol officers responded to the 6700 block of New Hampshire Avenue in the unincorporated portion of Hyattsville for the report of a shooting. When they arrived on the scene, officers discovered the victim, 16-year-old Kevin Wilson Jr. of Silver Spring, in a parking lot suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the hospital where he died a few hours later.
During their investigation, detectives developed McArthur and Williams as two of three suspects in this case. Investigators continue to work to establish a motive for the fatal shooting. Detectives believe Williams may be injured and may attempt to seek medical attention.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
