A suspect involved in a shooting Feb. 4 in Charles County, Maryland, has been located.

Anthony Dangelo Wilkins, 33, was wanted after he pulled a gun in a parking lot firing multiple rounds, killing Miaquita Gray and wounding another man, police said.

According to police, Wilkins was found after he was involved in a shooting with Virginia State Police Sunday. Wilkins was taken to a hospital where authorities confirmed his identity.

The second suspect in Gray's death, 33-year-old Charles Leon Thompson Jr., has not been found. Thompson is 5-feet-6-inches tall, 190 pounds and has tattoos on his arms and neck. A cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Thompson.

Miaquita Gray, 26, of Lexington Park, Maryland, was shot and killed last week after she left a Beer 4 U store, located in the 2100 block of Crain Highway in Waldorf, Maryland. Police said Gray was with a man, 24, who had been assaulted by two suspects inside the bar.

Investigators said Gray and the man were leaving through the parking lot, where Wilkins and Thompson were. Wilkins pulled a gun and fired multiple rounds, hitting Gray one time and injuring the man in the leg, police said.

Police do not believe Gray was the intended target. Both suspects fled the scene. Police are unsure what prompted the original assault and subsequent shooting.

Police are asking that anyone with information call Detective B. Buchanan at (301) 609-6477.
