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.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925.
