Police ID Md. homicide suspect
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).
