Police ID Md. homicide suspect

By Dan Morse

Montgomery County detectives have identified one of two men they say is responsible for the county's most recent homicide.

He is Corey Dreshaun Yates, and is known to frequent areas in Gaithersburg and southeast Washington, police said Thursday.

The identity of the second suspect has not been confirmed. Police described him as a black man, 20 to 22 years old, approximately 5'11" to 6' tall, with a thin build, medium skin tone, and possibly a star tattoo near his eye.

"These suspects are considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached," police said in a statement.

The search for the two stems from the afternoon of Dec. 21., when officers were called to the 1600 block of Hutchinson Lane in the Glenmont area for a possible shooting.

They found Doodley Derose, 19, suffering from a gunshot wound. Derose was taken to an area hospital, where he died.

Police have obtained a warrant for Yates charging him with first-degree murder. He is described as a black man, about 5' 7" tall and weighing 175 pounds.

Police ask anyone with information to call 240-773-5070 or 301-279-8000. Those who wish to remain anonymous or be eligible for a possible reward of up to $1,000 can call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

Did the Post just have to include a photo?

That kind of racial insensitivity is just unforgivable. I mean, you're tarnishing ever black person in America.

What? It's a murder? Suspect still at large? Oh, OK.

Just make sure you suppress race from most text descriptions, per the newspaper's standing policy....

You are a moron. They are looking for the suspect. What are they suppose to do issue a look out for a black male in Maryland. That would really narrow it down. BLACK people are killing each other off. I can't remember off hand the last white teenager that killed a black teenager in the metro area. Instead of Posting comments about tarnishing the black race why don't you go volunteer in the community & pass out some birth control so these ANIMALS will stop reproducing. It's disgusting.

Your comment is hateful, disrespectful, and distasteful.

Of course they should post a picture (I don't see the post saying they shouldn't). But the rest of these posts are absolutely hateful, and at least one is ignorant. To the person who can't remember a white teen killing a black kid -- the vast majority of violent crimes are INTRARACIAL.

I am glad they are describing the suspects again. For a while in the name of political correctness they refused to describe the criminals unless they were white. People need to know what is going on.
