Upper Marlboro Man Suspected in Murder Case
A 33-year-old Upper Marlboro man is suspected in a Sept. 16 Capitol Heights homicide, police said.
Police identified an Upper Marlboro man as the suspect in the homicide of a 25-year-old Capitol Heights woman.
Michael Jerome Stewart, 33, of the 4800 block of Amberfield Way in Upper Marlboro, was identified by police in the fatal shooting of Brittany Sade McKinley on Sept. 16 in Capitol Heights.
According to police, Stewart is McKinley's ex-boyfriend.
On Sunday, police responded to the 9000 block of Central Avenue around 6:14 a.m., after they received reports of a shooting. There they found McKinley, of 4600 block of Heath Street in Capitol Heights, fatally shot inside a car.
Another 23-year-old woman was in the car at the time, but was shot in the hand and transported to a local hospital. Police learned that the women were shot on Heath Street, but drove to a safe location on Central Avenue before calling police.
Now police are trying to find Stewart. A investigation revealed that Stewart and McKinley allegedly argued in front of her workplace—Irving's Night Club—before security kicked him out.
Police believe Stewart waited at the victim's home for her to return and allegedly shot both women when they arrived.
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Stewart should contact the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925.
