Detectives in Charles County Investigating Murder of 19-Year-Old Waldorf Man

October 25, 2022

On October 23, 2022, at approximately 2:17 p.m, the Prince George’s County Police Department (PGPD) received a 911 call reporting a shooting.

PGPD made contact with the caller, who was in his vehicle with the victim, and determined the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Further investigation revealed the shooting had taken place in the 2700 block of Albemarle Place in Waldorf. The Charles County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) was contacted and detectives responded to investigate.

Initial investigation revealed that the victim was sitting in a vehicle on Albemarle Place when it was shot at several times, ultimately striking the victim.

The victim, Aden Christopher Garcia, 19 of Waldorf, was treated at a hospital but later succumbed to his injuries on October 24. This does not appear to be a random shooting.
