Miaquita Gray, 26, of Lexington Park

On Saturday, February 4, 2017, at approximately 1:25 a.m., officers from the Charles County Sheriff’s Office responded to a business, Beer 4 U, located at 2177 Crain Highway in Waldorf for the report of a shooting.

Upon arrival, officers located two people with gunshot wounds. Miaquita Gray, 26, of Lexington Park, had a gunshot wound to the upper body; she was transported to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced deceased. A 24-year-old male was grazed in the leg during the shooting.

A preliminary investigation revealed the male victim was initially assaulted inside the business by the suspects. As he left the business moments later with Gray, the suspects were in the parking lot. For unknown reasons, one of the suspects pulled a gun and fired shots, striking Gray one time and wounding the male. It is not clear what prompted the assault and shooting.

Detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division are pursuing leads. Charles County Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect(s).

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. B. Buchanan at (301) 609-6477. Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous may contact Charles County Crime Solvers by calling 1-866-411-TIPS, texting CHARLES + the tip to CRIMES (274637) or submitting tips online at tipsubmit.com.

The investigation is ongoing.

      It’s PG County and SE Washington DC and Section 8 housing that’s coming to Charles County.
      Don’t believe me, go park behind the mall theatres for a late movie, I dare you!

    From the information provided there is no justification for gun violence. Plus Maryland is a dirtbag no carry state and a beer joint goes double for that. Hopefully these people will have creative stories to justify the violation of the sovereign state of Maryland regulations when they surrender themselves.

    • Anonymous on February 7, 2017 at 9:23 am

      You should know by now that the no carry law only applies to law abiding citizens, as with the rest of the laws.

      I just don’t understand what is in a person (or not in them) that they can take another person’s life. It seems like the young people today don’t value life except for their own and that’s questionable.

    Beautiful young lady, I hope her killer is found, probably some DC or PG County bamma.

      Why can’t it be a individual from Charles co. or St Mary’s imitating those real thugs they hear about or see on TV.

        Get real

      • Big Dookie on February 6, 2017 at 1:01 pm

        It certainly could be a local thug. We have more and more of them every day!

    So sad praying for the family!

  8. Big Dookie on February 4, 2017 at 6:01 pm

    It was probably over her or money. Usually are the causes of late night/early morning parking lot shootings.

      What? You would have done better to just mutter your comments to yourself instead of trying to post them here.

      I’m sorry, can you please re-write this in English?

    • SeaOfJoy on February 6, 2017 at 4:18 pm

      It’s not the cops pushing “DC trash” all over southern MD. There are a lot of circumstances that have led to this situation Charles and PG are in. One main issue is the housing prices plummeting in older neighborhoods around Charles County…especially the neighborhoods dotted with a lot of section 8 and rentals. I have nothing against section 8 housing, but you can’t inundate a small area, such as Saint Charles, with section 8 and not expect surrounding housing prices to go down. It’s a known fact that a lot of rental properties and section 8 housing are not well maintained, inside and out. Therefore, it brings down curb appeal, which in turn brings down neighboring communities. That’s usually the start of the slow decline of a community or town.

    This is such a shame, you can’t even go out anymore. Prayers to the family.

  20. Anonymous on February 6, 2017 at 8:49 am

    People can’t even go out to have a good time anymore without having to look over our shoulders. Communities need to step up and stop protecting any and all trash that live amongst you. Work with the cops to turn in the trash and your neighborhood and lives will improve. Sorry to the famly and friends for your loss.

    This is the 3rd homicide in Waldorf in exactly 2 weeks – Miaquita Gray (Sat 2/4), Carlton Bell Sr. (Fri 1/27), and Juan Gonzalez-Mejia (Sat 1/21). Waldorf is getting out of hand and I don’t think there’s much hope for getting it back on track. It’s only going to get worse. It’s sad to say, being that I’m a lifelong resident of Waldorf and hate to see what it’s becoming (or I guess you could say, has become already).

    – Moving soon, Christina Shupe

    • Keshia Taylor on February 7, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      Girl, don’t move to Laplata, it’s like New Jack City up in there, but the projects are townhouses. You better head across that bridge! Good luck!

      • SeaOfJoy on February 8, 2017 at 8:36 am

        Yea, you’re right – La Plata has become bad too. I’m actually hoping to move closer to work (which is DC), so Maybe Alexandria.

    • Anonymous on February 7, 2017 at 4:46 pm

      In all fairness the hispanic guy was found in PG.

      • Buck Wyld on February 7, 2017 at 7:51 pm

        Ohh, that changes everything! Hey y’all, it’s safe to move back Waldorf now, according to an anonymous posting! I feel better already.

      • SeaOfJoy on February 8, 2017 at 8:42 am

        Where is Mattawoman Lane? I only know Mattawoman Road. And the residents of Pinefield have a Waldorf address and pay Charles County taxes, so I don’t understand why it’s considered PG??? Unless I have the wrong idea where this took place…

      Apparently Barbara know who the gunman was.

      Barbara, would you care to share with us…and the Sherriff’s Dept., who the gunman is? Makes catching them much easier.

      • SeaOfJoy on February 8, 2017 at 8:37 am

        They’ve known who he is. They just can’t find him.

    • Anonymous on February 7, 2017 at 4:47 pm

      And the police know this? Or was this one of those “code” things where no one talks to the police?
