Police Arrest Suspect in Oxon Hill Murder

20140824 Murder Suspect

A man wanted in connection with the death of another man in Oxon Hill has been arrested, Prince George's County police say.

Antjuon Onhale Riddick, 36, of the 500 block of Wilson Bridge Drive in Oxon Hill, has been charged with first-degree murder for the death of 36-year-old Kenneth Antoine Jones of D.C.

He was taken into custody Monday, according to police.

Officers were called to the 5000 block of Glassmanor Drive late Saturday for a report of a shooting. Police said when they arrived they found Jones suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

Jones was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives believe the two men got into an argument after Riddick showed up uninvited to a party the victim was attending.

Riddick is being held at the Department of Corrections.
