PRINCE GEORGE’S CO., MD. According to WUSA9 , there are still a whole lot of questions about two apparently connected shootings this weekend in Capitol Heights.
Police have just arrested Bravon Freeman, 22, but they’re still looking for one or two more suspects in the same shooting.
Freeman’s arrest is in the second shooting of Todd Webb, 14, a freshman from Suitland High School. Police are still looking for the suspect or suspects who shot into a crowd just a few minutes earlier.
Police say dozens of people were gathered around a dice game in Capitol Heights very early Sunday morning. They say one or two people walked up and opened fire.
Four people were hit and injured. Brian Davis, 18, a star athlete at Roosevelt High in D.C., was killed.
Minutes later, police say Freeman grabbed a gun and shot Webb, a teenager who dreamed of playing pro football. After shooting Webb, police say Freeman ran into his apartment for a second and then came back out and started beating the mortally wounded teen.
“Mr. Freeman was identified on the scene as responsible for the second shooting,” said Maj. Robert Brewer, commander of the Criminal Investigation Division.
Police immediately arrested Freeman and took him to headquarters for questioning.
What’s still unclear is who killed Davis and shot and injured the other four people. The teen’s friends and family say that first shooting may have been revenge after a fight that took place even earlier.
“I understand there was a fight earlier,” said a friend. “A 14-year-old and a 19-year-old fighting. The 14-year-old got the best of the 19-year-old, so the 19-year-old came back to retaliate and shot up the place.”
What is clear is that two families of teenagers are grieving and looking for answers. “My heart is real heavy. He always told me a good joke to keep me smiling.”
Court records show Freeman had just had charges dropped against him days earlier in D.C. He’d been charged as a felon in possession of a firearm. Days after getting out of the D.C. jail, again a felon in possession of a gun, police say he shot and killed a high school freshman who had his whole life ahead of him.
They have charged Freeman with first and second degree murder. He’s being held without bond.
