Two men have been arrested and charged in the murder of a 19-year-old man in Silver Spring, Maryland, police say.
Multiple witnesses called 911 Tuesday afternoon to report a man was shot in the area of 1000 Good Hope Drive and the suspects drove off in a green Toyota, Montgomery County police said.
Officers found Jahiem Rayquan Pinnock, of Silver Spring, in a parking lot suffering from a gunshot wound, police said. Pinnock was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.
A few minutes after the 911 calls, an officer spotted the suspects' car, a green Toyota sedan with tape near the front bumper. When the officer tried to stop the driver on New Hampshire Avenue, the car accelerated and ran through a red light at the intersection of New Hampshire Ave. and Lockwood Drive, and crossed the center median, damaging one of its tires.
