Frederick Man Charged With Double Homicide In Prince George

He was arrested on Friday in D.C.



Capital Heights, Md (KM) Charges have been filed against a  Frederick man for a double homicide in Prince George’s County. Rendell Markeith Johnson, 25, of the 1400 block of Key Parkway was arrested on Friday, charged with 1st- and 2nd-degree murder. He’s being held in Washington D-C awaiting extradition to Prince George’s County.

Authorities say Johnson is suspected in the shooting deaths of Trevor Frazier, 24, Raymond Giles, 26. The two victims are also Frederick residents.

PG County Police say shortly after midnight on April 7th, officers were dispatched to the 5100 block of Fable Street in Capital Heights for a shooting. When they arrived, they found Frazier lying on the road beside a car with gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Giles was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Detectives say Johnson and the two victims knew each other, and the shooting stemmed from a dispute between Johnson and Frazier.

Johnson is also wanted on charges in Frederick, including burglary, assault, reckless endangerment and firearms offenses. On December, 19th, police responded to the Super Eight Motel on Monocacy Boulevard. Officers set up a barricade after a woman was escorted out of the building with injuries. Detectives determined Johnson might be inside. The Special Response Team cleared a hotel room, but Johnson was not found.

Frederick Police also say he’s wanted for additional burglary and assault charges stemming back to November, 2018. .
