Maryland Police Arrest Man Connected to Laurel Shooting

Posted:

 LAUREL, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County police have arrested a man in connection with a shooting last week in Laurel.

Police say 22-year-old Dequeone Demetrius Oates of Washington was arrested Friday night in the District of Columbia in the killing of 23-year-old Alex Tyshawn Little Jr. Oates was arrested in Washington on a warrant for second-degree murder.

Police were called Tuesday night to the Russett Green West community and found Little with several gunshots to his upper torso. Little was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the shooting does not appear to be a random act.

Anne Arundel County police worked with D.C. police to locate Oates in Washington. He is being held in Washington pending extradition.

Police say an investigation continues and a motive in the killing remains unclear.
