Pr. George’s police arrest man in fatal shooting of stepfather-to-be in Clinton

Prince George’s County police arrested a man who they suspect fatally shot his stepfather-to-be during a dispute Wednesday in Clinton.

Police say D’Juan Renay Hunter, 38, of Southeast Washington was visiting family on New Year’s Day when he got into a confrontation with Raymond Quattlebaum, 52, who was engaged to Hunter’s mother. Police say Hunter shot Quattlebaum in his home in 9100 block of Goldfield Place.

Hunter ran from the scene, but police found him in Bowie on Thursday morning, officials said. He faces first-degree murder and related charges.

Quattlebaum’s death was one of two homicides reported in Prince George’s on Jan. 1. County police are also investigating the fatal shooting of Vondrell Smith, 28, whom police found at the 5500 block of Karen Elaine Drive in New Carrollton about 4:30 a.m.

Smith, who police said was shot in the chest, was taken to Prince George’s Hospital Center, where he died. New Carrollton police handed the investigation over to the county’s homicide unit. Police have said Smith’s death appears to be related to a domestic incident.
