Would-Be Robber Shot, Killed by Resident

A would-be robber was shot and killed by a Prince George's County resident Friday night.

Police say two masked men with guns attempted to rob the residents of a home in the 2600 block of Shadyside Avenue just after 7 p.m. A resident of the home got into a fight with one of the would-be robbers over his gun.

A struggle ensued, and the robber, identified as 26-year-old Dexter Manigault of northeast D.C. was shot. He and a co-conspirator fled the scene in a getaway car, driven by a third suspect.

The men drove Manigault to a northeast D.C. firehouse for treatment. Manigault was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The other suspects involved have been identified as 19-year-old Daquawn Lubin of Arlington and 27-year-old Michael Hall of southeast D.C. 

Police say the robbery may have been drug-related. Lubin and Hall are facing robbery charges in the case.
