Man, 35, killed in troubled area of Langley Park

A man was killed Sunday night in an area of Langley Park that has long been a source of trouble for Prince George's County police, authorities said.

Officers were called to the 8100 block of 15th Avenue for a report of unknown trouble about 11:30 p.m., authorities said. When they arrived, they found Juan Perez Ramirez, 35, suffering from stab wounds, authorities said.

Ramirez, pf the 8100 block of 14th Avenue in Langley Park, was transported to a hospital, where he later died, authorities said.

Police said the killing stemmed from a “personal dispute,” but they declined to provide further details.

The 8100 block of 15th Avenue, home to the Villas at Langley apartment complex, has long drawn the attention of Prince George’s County police because it is frequently the site of violent disputes among the mostly Hispanic residents who live there.

Last year, police recorded two homicides in the 8100 block of 15th Avenue and a third just down the road in the 8500 block.

If an area like the one above is so troublesome, why not bulldoze it over and make a parking lot?

Villas @ Langley Apartments = Willowbrook Apartments.

Shooting at the Willowbrook, 4 pedrestriants run over 2 blocks away, and an 11 year old girl raped 1/2 mile away. Its been a fun & exciting weekend in the barrio.

Cant we get an I.C.E. checkpoint & round up all ILLEGALS from NW Park Apartments, to Sligo Creek Pkwy, and from Piney Branch & University, to the LEDO's at 24th & University? It would GREATLY improve the quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Good O'l Willowbrook, I remember when that was a nice place to live - god am I getting old. I dont even consider the place a barrio. Why dont we just start at Piney Branch and bulldozed all the way to Jumbo Field. I'm willing to bet that there is no one living there knows where Jumbo Field is, much less the Duck Pond. They could put in a golf course and use the mansion in willowbrook as a country club...

I count eight murders in this block since August 2006. Plus at least 11 more within two blocks.

I bet that the Maryland General and Montgomery County Council assembly will continue to give public money, that is taxes YOU paid, to CASA Maryland, the illegal alien advocacy group.

There should be NO public money to CASA Maryland.
