Maryland police captured a homicide suspect and charged him with firearm and narcotic offenses related to the death of a man earlier this month.
Detectives in Montgomery County arrested Ebou Nyass, 29, in an area hospital after he sought treatment for a gunshot wound.
The Germantown resident was charged with one count of possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, one count of possession of a firearm after a prior violent felony conviction, and one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute.
The charges stemmed from when officers responding to a 911 call on December 16 found Robert Wayne King, 30, on the ground near a resident off Sage Way in Germantown. King was suffering from gunshot wounds and soon died despite being rushed to a local trauma center.
Detectives found in the investigation that the pair had agreed to meet to complete a drug transaction, but during the meet an argument occurred.
Both men were shot, with a witness saying that King fired his gun first.
Nyass was later released after posting $100,000 bond, with no court date set as of yet. Additional charges may be forthcoming.
