D.C. man arrested in Oxon Hill double shooting

Matt Zapotosky

Police in Prince George's County have arrested a D.C. man who they say shot and killed a teenager and shot and wounded another man outside an Oxon Hill strip mall Wednesday afternoon, authorities said Thursday.

Jesse H. Miller, 23, of Southeast, was arrested Wednesday in D.C. and is being held there while he awaits extradition to Prince George's County to face murder and other charges, police said.

Investigators believe Miller shot and killed 17-year-old Eugene Jeffrey Dixon, of D.C., and shot and wounded another 21-year-old D.C. man outside a pawn shop and other businesses in the 5200 block of Indian Head Highway, near the Eastover Shopping Center and the police’s District IV station.

Capt. Misty Mints, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Police Department, said the suspect and victims knew each other, and Miller and Dixon had been engaged in an ongoing dispute in D.C. before the shooting. She said that after they ran into each other by chance in the strip mall Wednesday, “they started getting into an argument there, and the accused opened fire.”

Based on statements from the surviving victim and other witnesses, investigators quickly identified Miller as a suspect and located him in D.C. later Wednesday, Mints said.

“Just a real great arrest and everything came together and the fact that our [repeat offenders program enforcement] unit was able to locate him that quick, you can’t get any better than that,” she said.
