On Thursday, June 20, 2019, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office detectives developed information that two suspects in recent shootings on Ronald Drive in Lexington Park and Mojave Drive in Great Mills and an armed robbery in Lexington Park were in possession of firearms.

The suspects were approached in Lexington Park, and a foot chase ensued. One of the suspects fled to the area of St. Mary’s Square and ran through the Weis Market. Both suspects were eventually caught, and two BB guns were recovered.

The suspect vehicle in the shooting cases was located on Route 235 and a traffic stop was initiated. The vehicle refused to stop, and a vehicle pursuit ensued. The suspect vehicle was then involved in a collision on Great Mills Road with other vehicles and the occupants fled. There were no reported injuries in the collision. The suspect driver of the vehicle was caught a short distance from the collision and placed into custody. The suspect vehicle was discovered to be reported stolen from Bowie.

Vincent Lavey Harrington, 18 of Bowie, was charged with First-Degree Assault, Second-Degree Assault and Use of a Handgun in the commission of a Felony, Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle and numerous driving violations.

Anthony Albern Rice Jr., 18 of Drayden, was charged with Armed Robbery, First-Degree Assault and Use of a Handgun in the commission of a Felony and related charges.

Kyjuan Tyrese Bush, 17 of Lexington Park, was charged as an adult with Armed Robbery, First-Degree Assault, Second-Degree Assault, Theft, Use of a Handgun in the commission of a Felony, Fourth-Degree Burglary and related charges.

Personnel from the Criminal Investigations Division, the Vice Narcotics Division, the Special Operations Division and the Patrol Division all participated in the arrests on Thursday.

    I’m very surprised by the perpetrators. They seem like upstanding young men ready to bring a positive attitude to their culture.

      well maybe if they had someone who could hire them, maybe if they had educational opportunities around here this wouldn’t happen. Never got a chance.

        well maybe if they weren’t going to be convicted felons, they could get a job. Or maybe if they had any morals and intelligence, they would have an educational opportunity. You’re right, they now have no chance. But hey, at least they’re cool right?

        GTFO DJ it’s not hard to find work. You have to want to work. That’s their problem. You are a loser and an enabler. These boys have more opportunities to do something with their lives than anybody before them. Heaven forbid they enlist in the military or go to school. They could get a job within walking distance of where they live if they wanted. But now they are pretty much guaranteeing they won’t have a future with their criminal records. That’s their choice and nobody to blame but themselves.

      • Lonewolfmcquade on June 22, 2019 at 10:30 am

        I will never hire them

      • Gwilli on June 23, 2019 at 2:04 pm

        So they did not have the opportunity do well in school? Why is that? School is compulsory and with responsible parenting they could have excelled. They choose not to and if the excuse is they were some how disadvantaged because of skin color then why do somebody”disadvantaged” kids make it successfully? Hard work is the answer!

      • OK here is the truth that people are not allowed to say anymore on June 26, 2019 at 7:36 am

        So what do you say to the thousands LIKE THEM that went to school, got jobs, did NOT illegally use guns to rob, steal, and commit felons?

        Yeah – the ones who didn’t steal cars from other WORKING people to destroy and abandon when they run away from police like little rats in the street.

        These three are hoodlum scum POS! Look at the faces and each one says just that.

        Nothing but pure N. They chose the life – they embraced it – they love it.

        So now – live it. IN PRISON.

    • V.W. Buggin on June 24, 2019 at 8:00 am

      I also would like to know, but the reality is, the motive is they are black teens and they just cant help “they self”. They are just compelled to commit violent crimes, you know, cuz the man holding them down…

      • KJ411 on June 25, 2019 at 9:55 pm

        The fact that you think because they are “black teens” is a reason behind their actions. People like this probably come from broken homes and no guidance.

        • Here's the Truth if you want it on June 26, 2019 at 7:41 am

          You are full of BS.

          THOUSANDS come from “broken homes” that DO NOT illegally shoot, steal, trash people’s property, and run from law enforcers.

          Sell that poor minority BS somewhere else.

          Pure lies told by the liberal enablers.

          The truth is – each person chooses their own destiny.

  7. Finish the story on June 21, 2019 at 9:34 am

    BB Guns? BB Guns don’t leave shell casings. Was a real gun found? Because a real gun was used in the shootings. Also, they caught two on foot and the driver of the vehicle; but there were “occupants” in the car during the collision that fled. Did they get away? If so, do they have the gun that was involved in the shootings? As of right now there is nothing tying these three to the shooting except possibly the car. Find the gun and the other “occupants.”

          You wrote the word (twice) as there?


          You need to educate your self on correct word use.

          And remember, “they’re” is also in the running.

          So pay attention, class is in…..

          There = a place (I will see you there.)

          Their = showing plural ownership of “they”. (Their faces looked shocked.)

          They’re = contraction of the two words “They + Are” (They’re here to get you.)

          No charge – now you can write at the 4th grade level.

          No one can respect your opinion when you write like a drop-out

    • Ha on June 24, 2019 at 8:08 am

      If they didnt do it, as you are trying to suggest, why would they take a plea (which admits they did it)???????

    • Yeah - "Y'all are ignorant af they..." on June 26, 2019 at 8:06 am

      Yeah – one BIG coincidence.

      Especially running from LEOs in the stolen car, while wrecking into others like reckless fools.

      Then running away like scared little girls.

  18. GoodTheyGotchaURPunkA$$e$ on June 21, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    I have to agree with you the eyes say it all, my gut instinct tells me that these gutter rats deliberately caused all this chaos on purpose in the past two weeks. If we go back and review their rampage which includes beating a person senseless, robbery, multiple drive by shootings, vehicle theft, high speed car chase, smashing into cars, running around with loaded guns and total disregard for the safety of others it is a dead give away of a potential gang initiation. They were out to impress whoever their handlers are, well I certainly hope it was worth it and now we can only pray that the judge sees fit to make all these little boys someones little cell bitch up the road for many years to come.

    How would parents be responsible for grown mens actions? Further more, these men are black. The parents were out working, paying bills, and taxes same as you I presume. Not chasing behind grown men. Sounds like the police have some of the culprits, maybe?

    • Parent on June 21, 2019 at 3:47 pm

      Our society always wants to blame someone else. Blame the parents. Blame the teachers. Everyone is responsible for their own actions. Parents, teachers, ministers can offer advice, but none can make someone do what is right. This is a choice of the individual. Bad kids can have good parents. Good kids can have bad parents. I’ve seen it both ways.

    To smnewsnet, Its obvious that people have a right to their opinions and it’s also obvious that racism is at the core of some if not most of your readers motivations. Your news organization provides the forum, consider revising what you allow. Change nothing if you share the opinions that I reference and read the replies to my post to get additional examples of this racism.

    • SirTubmanDouglas on June 21, 2019 at 4:04 pm

      So sick of the race card being used it has been slapped down so many times on this forum it is like the boy who cried wolf with every comment that one does not like they call it out as automatic racism.

      What you are seeing is a way for individuals to vent their rage for the majority of the comments made it has nothing whatsoever to do with color of ones skin. These are people with common sense because if they were true racist they would take matters into their own hands and hunted these punks down themselves and meted out whatever punishment they saw fit.

      This anger that you are referring to as racism has everything to do with the actions of people such as these buffoons.

      It is more incomprehensible each passing day here in Saint Mary’s County. Zero regard for the health and safety of others. Deliberate self centered acts of destruction, violence, causing hell and havoc against and towards others.

      SMNEWSNET is a refreshing news site who in my own opinion allow everyone to have an equal say.There is no partiality here one race over the other that is the beauty of Freedom of Speech and SMNEWSNET respects that liberty for one and all.

      I am not a racist never was nor will I ever be but I will tell you what I am, I am a racist over dumb ignorant asses be it white, black, yellow, pink with purple polk-a-dots that cause physical and financial harm or worse to victims.
