Help sought finding homicide suspect

A homicide suspect sought by Montgomery County detectives is a member of the "38 Mob" street gang who opened fire on a 27-year-old after the victim had been beaten, robbed and was lying on the ground, police said this week.

Tyshon Lateek Jones, 18, should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

Police have issued a wanted poster (PDF) and are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads his capture.

The shooting dates back to Aug. 21, when Julian Kelly, who lived on Castle Boulevard in the Briggs Chaney area of Silver Spring, was coming home from work at the county fairgrounds, according to his sister, Kisha Kelly.

A group tried to take his backpack, she said. He was assaulted by the group, police said. On Sept. 4, Julian Kelly died from the attack.

Police arrested three suspects -- ages 23, 19 and 14. But they can't find the fourth, Jones. His last known address is in Martinsburg, W.Va.

Police ask anyone with information to call 240-773-5070, or 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) to be eligible for a possible reward.

Wow, all these fake "gang members" stuff is so funny. All of these wanna be gang members are the biggest jokes and I wish they would pass a law that if you say you're with a gang, that you get a life sentence for claiming to be in a gang.

There's something incredibly screwy about seeing an ad for a Norman Rockwell exhibit at the Smithsonian right next to this news item about a two-bit gang-banger homicide suspect.

(If you don't see the ad, it's because the ads are displayed quasi-randomly per page view, of course.)

They better not be cutting any money from anti-gang initiatives in MoCo. These pathetic criminal low-lifes are swarming the county like stinkbugs.

The fakeness aside, these deaths are real. Even fake azzz wannabes can kill. As idiotic as we find it, I know it wouldn't change anything if these were 'authentic' dudes doing this dirt.

And if you go back thru history, there has rarely been a time where youth gangs didn't exist and rape/robbery/assault/murder/illegal moneymaking wasn't a part of their activities. Most Gangsters started off very young, most being indoctrinated into the gang in grade school. If you look at the 5 points area of NY where the film 'Gangs of New York' was based, on up thru the 1920's era, Mob era, up to today, most follow that blueprint.

It's as American as Apple Pie...

An innocent person coming back from work, then beaten and killed. There is no punshiment too severe.

These are NOT human beings, and we as society need to keep that front and center in our minds. Punishments are FAR to lenient - NOTHING is to severe.

Trout1--

The 8th Amendment says:

"Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, ***nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted***"

Now come on everyone...he's only 18. He's just a poor, misunderstood kid who really is a good boy(fatal shooting aside).
He went to a bad school, grew up without his daddy and got picked last for kickball so give him a break. He never had a chance in life...
I GUARANTEE when he's caught at least some of those will be used to justify his actions by the public defender.

Looks like we need to modify the 8th admendment, then.

Castle blvd and Briggs Chaney area is a bad area, due to large section 8 apartment housing there and all kind of people on drugs living there. Even police are attacked and beaten there.
