Suspect in slaying still at large

jonesmug.jpgMontgomery County detectives and the family of slaying victim Julian D. Kelly appealed to the public this weekend to help locate a fourth remaining suspect in the killing: Tyshon Lateek Jones (pictured, right).

"He has to be getting help from someone," said the victim's sister, Kisha Kelly. "Turn him in. What are you getting out of keeping him hidden?"

Julian Kelly was shot during a robbery Aug. 21 in the 14000 block of Castle Boulevard. He died Sept. 4.

Jones’s last known address is in Martinsburg, W.Va. Detectives ask anyone with information to call 240-773-5070.

This is a sad story HOWEVER I MUST COMMENT on the victim's sister comment...she seems to relish in the fact that her deceased brother "just isn't going to let someone take something from him".....Is it me or does this sound incredibly stupid???? Is a backpack worth your life????? Perhaps I am the one who is stupid but if someone asks me for my car, my money, my purse etc...THEY CAN HAVE IT NO QUESTIONS ASKED! Money, backpacks etc can be replaced...MY LIFE CAN NOT! The stupidity of it all.
I pray for the family and I pray for all those who may be victims of a robbery my advice :JUST HAND IT OVER...YOUR LIFE ISN'T WORTH IT!

A lot of times kids from tough backgrounds put up a fight almost as a reflex. I don't think they think it through in every situation, nor do they always have time.

Also, some kids are in environments where people are always ripping them off, taking their stuff, etc. They get used to it -- and used to defending their possessions --and all it takes that one time where it's a bunch of thugs-in-training eager to use a firearm.

Poor kid.

You always want to bo on high alert when around Castle Blvd area, there is all kind of crime going on day and night and drug actitivity. You certainly not going to resist during a hold up since someone is shot every few months there. They need to change the name from Castle Blvd to Thug Aveneue.

I actually moved from Takoma park to Castle Blvd (early 80's) to get away from what my dad called the wrong influence.... we were at castle blvd less than 5 months before my dad (who was a MoCo cop) arrested or observed wrongdoing on the daily,even caught a house burglary as it happened on his day off... needless to say we moved to the country that was once known as Gaithersburg.... Castle blvd has been a sketchy area since the early 80's... I really do feel for the kid and his family. Reason why someone won't turn him in... remember the urban street code of no snitchin??? This is why he is on the down low and hard to find. Somebody knows, they are just being stupid by not helping.
