Three arrested for attempted murder
Allegedly fired several gunshots into home during party, kicked open door
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.
