CLINTON – A 22-year-old Clinton man, who was arrested in October 2015 for shooting into a car full of people, was shot and killed at a party Saturday night in Clinton.
Just before 10 p.m., patrol units from the Prince George’s Police Department, along with units from the county’s fire department, responded to the 5300 block of Vienna Drive for a report of a person shot in the street.
Upon arrival, fire and police officials found an adult male, who police have identified as 22-year-old Carl Patrick Marshall of the 5400 block of Rockwell Drive in Clinton, suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper body. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
Homicide detectives from the county police department believe it was not a random act and are working to establish a motive and identify the suspect(s).
According to John Erzen, spokesperson for Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s office, Marshall was arrested on October 15, 2015 and charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted second-degree murder, along with 11 other charges, and was held on a no-bond status for his role in a shooting. On October 29, a judge changed his bond status to $75,000, which he was able to post the next day and was released.
“A state's attorney is at all bond hearings and in this case, we did not want Marshall to go free because of his charges,” Ezren said. “But for some reason the judge changed his bond status and he was able to post bond and was released.”
Ezren said Marshall was scheduled to go on tail on May 3, 2016.
