    Six suspects have been arrested in the early Tuesday morning murder of a man in Suitland, Maryland that left evidence scattered across multiple crime scenes.

    Prince George's County Police have arrested a 17-year-old girl and five men ranging in age from 18 to 23. Authorities say an argument between the suspects and the victim, 54-year-old Amos Milburn Jones, led to the killing.

    Lopez, a juvenile, is being charged as an adult in the crime.

    "This is a senseless crime that needlessly ended a man's life," said Prince George's County Police Chief Mark Magaw. "Such blatant disregard for any member of our community is deplorable. I'm grateful to our officers and detectives for quickly closing this case."

    Investigators collected evidence in several areas Tuesday morning, including the alleyway where the victim's body was found, and the playground of the nearby Regency Court Apartments on Swann Road.

    A man who called police after finding Jones' body told News4 that he had seen the victim get into an argument with several people.

    "I saw the two guys, the first two guys fighting. Then they left. Then I saw [a] girl and four other guys," the witness said. "And that's when I left. Then... when I came back, I saw somebdy laying in the alley, and it was him."
