At about 9:35pm on August 2nd MRPD officers responded for the report of several shots heard in the 2500 block of Arundel Road. When they arrived they discovered that two men were having an argument over a cell phone. During the argument one of the men produced a handgun and fired several shots at the other man before fleeing the area in a gray Honda with heavily tinted windows. The victim was not struck or otherwise injured by the shots. PGPD detectives responded to assist MRPD with the investigation. Several witnesses were located and their statements enabled officers to get a description of the shooter, his nickname, and the area he frequents in Hyattsville. Officers are in the process of positively identifying him and obtaining a warrant for his arrest.
The suspect is a dark skin black male with dreadlock style hair and tattoos on his face; and goes by the name “Jezzy.”
Anyone with information in this case should call MRPD at 301-985-6565/6566.
