Ghost gun used in carjacking, 2 Prince George’s Co. teens arrested

Two teenage boys are accused of stealing a car on gunpoint in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and police are still looking for the third suspect.

It happened Tuesday around 11 p.m. on the 4800 block of Silver Hill Road in Suitland. Officers saw the car 45 minutes later near Branch Avenue and Curtis Drive in Temple Hills. Police pursued the vehicle. The suspects crashed into a tree at Southern and Eastern avenues in Southeast D.C.

Three people ran from the car and the two teenagers, 14 and 15, were taken into custody nearby. Police also found a loaded ghost gun, a firearm without a serial number, inside the car, a Prince George’s County police statement said.

The two boys are currently in custody in D.C. The 14-year-old is from District Heights, and the 15-year-old, who was arrested for carjacking in a neighboring jurisdiction in January 2022, is from Suitland.

Anyone with more information on what happened should call police at 301-516-3788.
