Prince George’s County police arrested two women Thursday in connection with the New Year’s Day shooting death of a 28-year-old New Carrollton man.
Police have charged 26-year-old Lakeisha C. Evans and 28-year-old Adrienne J. Bell with first-degree murder in the slaying of Vondrell Lemar Smith. Police said Smith and Bell were in a relationship.
The incident occurred at about 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 1 when police were called to Bell and Evans’s home on the 5500 block of Karen Elaine Drive for a shooting, police said. There, they found Smith suffering from a gunshot wound. He died shortly after police arrived.
Prince George’s County police said the investigation preliminarily reveals that a confrontation broke out after Smith went to the Karen Elaine Drive home.
The women fled the scene after the shooting, police said, but were later arrested at a family member’s home in Laurel. Police said they are still investigating who fired the weapon.
