Four Suspects Arrested in Connection with Murder of Teen in La Plata

October 12, 2016

murder On Tuesday, October 11, members of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division arrested four people in connection with the Sept. 25 shooting of Mason Cameron Atkins, 18, of Deale.

A preliminary investigation showed Atkins and several friends learned of an outdoor party on Mona Farm Place in La Plata and showed up uninvited. When they pulled up to the driveway, they were asked to leave – which they did. They drove about a half mile, heading toward the main highway, when they stopped their vehicle on the side of the road. The suspects, who were also asked to leave the area, drove by the victims and an argument ensued between the two groups. During the argument, the suspects began hitting the victims who then sprayed the suspects with pepper spray to get them away. One of the suspects pulled a handgun and fired several shots into the car, striking Atkins and his friend. The suspects fled and the victims drove to Popes Creek Road in Newburg where they called 911.

Atkins was pronounced deceased on the scene and the other victim survived.

Detectives pursued leads and recovered critical evidence subsequently linking the suspects to the shooting.

Investigators also served several search warrants and recovered a gun which will be examined to determine if it was the same gun used in the shooting.

After conferring with the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office, Tyreq Kaylin Tilghman,18; Kevin Averell Jones,18; Talivah Laraiah Salahuddin, 17; and Shanya Imari Milstead, 17, all of Waldorf, were charged with first-degree murder, first-degree assault and attempted murder.

The juveniles were charged as adults.

All four suspects are being held at the Charles County Detention Center with no bond.

    One kid dead and 4 kids lives ruined over what? It is absolutely pathetic that young men aren’t man enough to settle their arguments without a gun. Are kids growing up to be that wimpy these days where the first thing they reach for is the gun? When I was young I kicked a few buts and sometimes got my but kicked but never did I think about ending things by murdering the other person. I don’t know if it is the parents, or the neighborhood they grew up in but something is broken with these 4. It pains me to say it with 4 people so young but the shooter should get life and his accomplices should get 10 years. This is sad but the kid that was shot is not coming back so the shooter should suffer a lifetime for what he did. Senseless

      So true! I grew up hanging with plenty of bad crowds from Newburg to P.G. and gotten/given plenty of black eyes through the ’90s without resorting to weapons.
      People have more fear of losing a fight than fear of taking another persons life and spending the rest of their life in prison these days.

      “the shooter should suffer a lifetime for what he did.” How do you know that the shooter was a he when the article/report doesn’t specifically state who fired the shots?

      • Reality on October 18, 2016 at 12:13 am

        While it is not certain, I would assume it is a he as well. Just look at crime statistics. I would be a paycheck it was one of the males.

      I have no doubts they’re innocent, but there are so few damn details! It doesn’t help that they’re being de-humanized by their charge. Even if they are shown to be innocent at any point. They’all be remembered as teens that “Got away with murder”. I feel like the only way to see the truth at this point is to view their trial. I need more details. There has to be more to this, despite what’s being said by the media.

      • Anonymous on October 13, 2016 at 12:00 pm

        What more details do you need when the report clearly states the following:

        “Detectives pursued leads and recovered critical evidence subsequently linking the suspects to the shooting.

        Actually none of them has snitched or pointed fingers at anyone and that is why they all have been charged with the same thing and have no bond.

    Hillary is probably very relived that two of the suspects are 18, and can still vote for her! As for the 17 year olds, maybe their birthdays will fall before election day, so they can VOTE DEMOCRAT! All four of them represent how our nation has decayed, under 7 1/2 years of Obamas rule. We may never recover from his dictatorship. TRUMP – 2016 America First!!!

Oh, blame it on Obama… Well, we won’t get a chance to blame Trump for anything (as he WILL NOT be our next president). As I’m sure you know, some of his own political party isn’t even supporting him.

        Sorry, but I highly doubt that in the dark of night, one of them saw him pull out his gun, and had time to say “don’t do it” before he started firing… Just saying.

        Secondly, all 3 of the people that didn’t pull the trigger could have gone to the police and didn’t. The act of not turning themselves in warrants serious punishment. I’m all for the idea of going lenient on them had they don’t the right thing and gone to the police. But they didn’t, so now they are no better than the gunman. Just my $0.02

        No condolences to the family of the trigger man, they raised a killer. No condolences to the families of his accomplices, they raised children without honor and integrity. Only family that deserves sympathy and condolences is the victims family. Why would anyone sympathize with a murderer? He will unfortunately be able to see and talk to his family for the rest of his miserable life of incarceration, the victims family is not so lucky. This is why death is the only true justice for cold blooded murder.

    Doesn’t matter their age or neighborhood they grew up in. The problem is today’s society giving people the impression that they are entitled to take what they want. May not have intended for the outcome to be this way, but carrying a gun and thinking it’s the only way to resolve a problem is completely wrong. Unfortunately, the other three will plea down and barely receive any jail time while the shooter won’t get the sentence he deserves either.

    • Anonymous on October 13, 2016 at 12:10 pm

      The shooter will probably get about 20 years and be up for parole in 10. People get more time for non-violent crime (dealing drugs, burglary etc.) in Maryland than they do for violent crime (murder, assault etc.).

      Maybe. But perhaps if the other 3 were not guilty and notified the police the night it happened, they wouldn’t have been arrested. But I am guessing that the “street code” of not snitching was more important than that boy’s life and their freedom. They chose poorly.

      However, the “non shooters” had weeks to go to the cops and didn’t, I have a problem with that. I’d also really love to know, from the people close to them, like their parents, was their behavior unusual the last few weeks? That answer will tell us a lot about who these people truly are. I know if I were involved in a murder, I would be freaking out. People close to me would know something was wrong. If these 4 killed this kid and their behavior was unaffected, that’s pretty scary…

    • The punisher on October 13, 2016 at 1:15 pm

      Thank the NRA for keeping most of us armed so that in case these dindunuffin goot boys, wanted to try it on a real man, they would have had their asses layer down like the scum they are, thanks to the DemocRATS I unfortunately have to reload to make sure all 4 of the got equal JUSTICE!

      • YourMom on October 13, 2016 at 9:19 pm

        “A real man”
        Sorry, a real man used fists and doesn’t need weapons sissy-boy.
        Imagines more guns in this incident, = more dead people? smart

        • The punisher on October 14, 2016 at 8:56 am

          I guarantee you that gun was hot, yes as a real man who has grown up with these kinds of animals, I would love to mow this trash down, you see, as a responsible adult I have a duty to protect my family and community, I’m sorry but this is a race issue, because when 13% of the population commits 90% of ultra violent crimes in this country ( these are facts that Obama bin ladden ) doesn’t want us to know, the majority get an idea that this particular race is severely under evolved. That being said, violent crimes against whites are nearly 300% higher than violent crimes against all minirities committed by whites ( more facts) I’m sorry that the truth makes you angry , and makes you tell lies to yourself about all your cousins. Maybe you are the few in that race that actually does contribute, raise your kids, has a job, isn’t on welfare, you know like most whites do. I doubt it, you’re probably just typical. Yes thank the NRA for keeping me well armed, and confident in my protection of family, community, and self. Go read up on your people asshole get a clue, then you may speak when adults are present, real men do fight with fists, just so happens most blacks carry stolen guns or knives all the time because they can’t fight, especially one one. Thank god I’m a big ol white boy that has a lifetime of experience in beating these animals down when they thought they had an easy target, I like the hands on approach, but if needed I don’t mind the end of the line approach for any fool that makes that mistake

            “Maybe you are the few in that race”
            Actually, I’m white, grew up on an working tobacco farm in SOMD and see plenty of bad on all sides.
            Also have the miraculous ability to see good on all sides. Apparently rare these days..

          As long as it’s the right people, I’m ok with that. Aren’t you sick of criminals preying on innocent people?

    • Bob Stark on October 13, 2016 at 1:55 pm

      Really, Thank the NRA for a teenage thug carrying an illegal weapon?

    • Anon on October 13, 2016 at 5:31 pm

      Yeah, because I’m sure the gun he had was legal! No matter what they do, people will still buy them on the black market.

    • Anonymous on October 13, 2016 at 8:36 pm

      Are you that stupid? Do you really think the gun was LEGALLY OWNED?

    Its sad that so many young and old people lives are being ruined by senseless murders and incarceration of loved ones. We need to focus on building a better system no man or woman should have dominion over anothers life just because of a title or weapon. I do not support locking away these youth for more than 5 years we need rehabilitation. You never know whats being held back or stopped when things transpired. Those young people in jail could end up being the teacher or mail man in your community. The young man who was murdered could have been the future father of one of the worlds greatest engineers. I believe we need to do better as a nation first than as individuals second.

    • Little Dookie on October 14, 2016 at 10:33 am

      I am guessing you’ve never been the victim of a violent crime. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that if that was your son that was murdered, you’d feel different. Some people are just turds, plain and simple. There is no helping them. Stop blaming others for these people’s poor decisions.

    • Reality on October 18, 2016 at 12:36 am

      Lock em up and toss the key, or better yet, death penalty so I don’t have to pay for their room and board for the next 20.

  35. Friend of kids parents on October 13, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    I think they were scared.. Once he shot inside the car he probably didnt even know he actully shot someone and killed him. However, at that point the driver shanya should of went straight to the police or told her parents…but fear takes place and if you think you will get away with it then you try to image it didn’t happen and hooes it go away. It is really sad. However, the actions and stuff should of been relevant in the home. The behaviors should of ben noticed. Im sure the parents or even them seen and heard about what happened and stuff like this I see on the news I talk to my kids about it. They all will get in trouble becaude now it is not just about who pulled the trigger..its about no one coming forward and not saying anyhting for weeks. So it then becomes conspiracy and accessory to murder…all we can do is pray

    • Reality on October 18, 2016 at 12:38 am

      Yeah, pray that justice is actually served for this hate crime.

      • Anonymous on October 18, 2016 at 4:49 pm

        So its a hate crime cause the victim happens to be white, when nowhere in the story it said that race had anything to to with the motive. You are either ignorgant or a race baiter

    they killed a white boy in SOMD? These jokers are done for

    • Sad on October 13, 2016 at 8:59 pm

      I would have to agree Big Dookie. But hopefully it will teach other young people to think before the act and watch who they are hanging with.

    • Reality on October 18, 2016 at 12:38 am

      Hopefully. If it were the other way around it would be a hate crime. THIS should be a hate crime.

    First of all to all the people that saying they ALL should get punished , take a seat because ALL four did NOT shoot the boy . It WASNT premeditated so how would the OTHER 3 people know that he was going to shoot . AND WHERE did they find the gun at huh ? ALL OF THEM SHOULD NOT GET PUNISH . Idc if you know the boy that got killed . Because ALL of them didn’t commit the crime . So just watch what you say and think . Just because they all black don’t mean they ALL had something to do with it .

      “One is liable as an accomplice to the crime of another if he or she gave assistance or encouragement or failed to perform a legal duty to prevent it with the intent thereby to promote or facilitate commission of the crime.””An accomplice can be convicted even if the person that he or she aids or encourages is not. He or she is usually subject to the same degree of punishment as the principal offender.”

    • anonymous on October 13, 2016 at 10:16 pm

      Oh my, I guess you learned ebonics in your good ‘ol CCPS education. One pulled the trigger, the other kept thier mouths shut. That is what makes the other three guilty. They will at least get an accessory charge.

    • Anonymous on October 14, 2016 at 12:26 am

      The other 3 called the police and told them what happened, right? Idiot.

    • Roger on October 14, 2016 at 5:11 am

      You kids defending your friends are stupid. Do they not teach basic law in HS? Did their parents not teach them basic morals?

    This is a hate crime, bottom line. If it were the other way around the Maryland National Guard would already be activated again for BLM Bullsh*t and looting.

      once again look up the definition of a hate crime. stop trying to race bait or stir up trouble. Just because the suspect and victim are of another race doesn’t mate it a hate crime. I cant believe some people are so stupid.
