A man and two teenagers were ar­rested yes­ter­day and charged with at­tempted mur­der af­ter at least one of them al­legedly fired sev­eral gun­shots into a house dur­ing a grad­u­a­tion party in Wal­dorf on Sun­day evening.

Akeem Rashad Har­ring­ton, 21, Dion Tevon McBeth, 17, and his twin sis­ter Dana Ni­c­hole McBeth, all from Wal­dorf, re­main in cus­tody as of press time Tues­day to await bail re­view Wed­nes­day

morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

On May 15 around 9:30 p.m., deputies with the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to the 3500 block of Thresh­field Street for a re­ported as­sault. Of­fi­cers ar­rived at the house where a grad­u­a­tion party was be­ing held and dis­cov­ered that some of the party-go­ers had en­tered into an ar­gu­ment with oc­cu­pants of a car out­side the res­i­dence, a press re­lease states. The oc­cu­pants of the car were up­set be­cause the party-go­ers had parked on both sides of the road, block­ing them from con­tin­u­ing down the road.

A fight broke out be­tween the two groups, but the oc­cu­pants of the car fled the scene be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rived, po­lice re­ported.

Later around 11:14 p.m., the same ve­hi­cle was spot­ted out­side the house. The res­i­dents of the house asked the party-go­ers to come in­side the home, fear­ing that some­thing may hap­pen.

Then, at least one man from the car ap­proached the front door and fired three shots into the home be­fore kick­ing in the door and fir­ing at least one more shot, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

No one was struck by the vol­ley of bul­lets.

The sus­pects then fled the scene, but de­tec­tives were able to quickly iden­tify them, the press re­lease states.

Har­ring­ton, Dion and Dana McBeth were ar­rested two days later on May 17.
