Homicide Unit detectives today released surveillance video of three suspects wanted in connection with a double homicide in Suitland last week. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this case. Tipsters will never have to give their name.
On July 9th, at about 7:20 pm, patrol officers responded to the 4600 block of Silver Hill Road for the report of a shooting.
Twenty-two-year-old Courtney Simms of 23rd Parkway in Temple Hills and 23-year-old Anthony Douglas of 28th Avenue in Marlow Heights were fatally wounded. The shooting occurred in an alleyway between two businesses.
In the surveillance video, the three suspects are seen getting out of a car and then walking out of the screen toward the victims. After the shooting, one of the suspects is seen running back to the car.
