On December 16, Charles County Sheriff’s detectives arrested Nicholas Jabbar Williams, 20, of Waldorf, in connection with the murder of Cameron Marcel Townsend, 18, of Brandywine, who was shot and killed on December 14 in the intersection of Holly Avenue and Spruce Street in Waldorf.

As detectives continue to investigate, a clear motive has not been established nor is it known why the victim and suspect were in that area. Investigation did reveal the victim and suspect knew each other. Williams was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder and other related charges.
