Po­lice have ar­rested three sus­pects in con­nec­tion to a fa­tal shoot­ing on May 2 in Brandy­wine. A wit­ness told in­ves­ti­ga­tors that Ra’Shaad Stan­ley Har­grave, 22, of Wal­dorf was shot and killed af­ter they were robbed dur­ing a drug trans­ac­tion, ac­cord­ing to court records.

The Prince Ge­orge’s Po­lice Depart­ment an­nounced on Mon­day that Ai­den Daniel Hicks, 19, An­to­nio Ravond Howard, Jr., 22, and Rod­ney Ter­rence Nedd, Jr., 21, all of Brandy­wine, have been ap­pre­hended and charged with first-de­gree mur­der.

On May 2 around 1:47 p.m., po­lice re­ceived a re­port of a shoot­ing at 15100 Gen­eral Lafayette Boule­vard. Upon ar­rival, PGPD of­fi­cers found

Har­grave suf­fer­ing from mul­ti­ple gun­shot wounds. Paramedics later pro­nounced him dead.

Homi­cide de­tec­tives re­sponded to the scene and in­ter­viewed a wit­ness who said Har­grave en­tered a ve­hi­cle with three peo­ple in­side for a planned drug trans­ac­tion, po­lice records in­di­cate. Mo­ments later, a gun was drawn as one of the sus­pects an­nounced Har­grave was be­ing robbed. The wit­ness said he/ she was also robbed of $500 and a Gucci belt. Then, sev­eral shots rang out and Har­grave’s body fell out of the car, the wit­ness told in­ves­ti­ga­tors.

“The de­fen­dant [Hicks] then shot the vic­tim, while he lay bleed­ing on the ground,” charg­ing doc­u­ments state.

The sus­pects then fled the scene.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that the mo­tive was a mar­i­juana-re­lated rob­bery, a PGPD press re­lease states.

Po­lice ar­rested Nedd on May 4, Hicks on May 5, and Howard on May 7, court records show.

All three men are be­ing held with­out bond.
