D.C. police have arrested a Maryland man in the Nov. 12 killing of Keith Banks in Northeast Washington.

Banks, 29, was found unconscious by police in the 1100 block of Galloway Street.

He was taken to a local hospital, where he died from a gunshot wound.

On Tuesday, Derrell Bennett, 22, of Hyattsville, was charged with first-degree murder while armed. Last week, another man was also arrested in the killing.

On December 20, D.C. police arrested Reginald Vance, 39, of Brentwood, Md., also charging him with first-degree murder while armed in the Banks killing.

Get up, get, get, get down, PG County is a joke in your town!

I'm so glad I moved out of that hellhole.

I can't wait for the state to take over its government; it's just a matter of time.

Wallacea, it's because both suspects are from PG. If you visit this site everyday like I do, I'd say 80% or more of the crime-related stories either take place in PG or involve someone from PG. That can't be ignored.
