UPDATE 11.18.16 Montgomery County police have arrested and charged two suspects in connection with the homicide of Richard Michael Lone III.

Police have arrested and charged Mohammed Sirleaf, age 20, of Towne Crest Drive in Gaithersburg, for the murder of Lone. Timario Makaveli Gregg, age 19, of Castle Boulevard in Silver Spring, was also arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a minor.

According to police, a witness told detectives that he recognized one of the suspects as a former Magruder High School student, but could not recall the suspect’s name. Detectives spoke with the School Resource Officer (SRO) assigned to Magruder High School, who confirmed that Sirleaf was a former student. The witness was later shown photographs of  multiple individuals and identified Sirleaf from the photos as the suspect involved in the homicide. The witness also told police that Sirleaf had been to the home of Lone on prior occasions to smoke marijuana.

Police also spoke with additional people who had knowledge of the homicide and were able to determine that Gregg may have been present in the home with Sirleaf at the time of the shooting. Police said that on Nov. 3rd, Gregg posted a photo on one of his social media pages that appear to show him with a handgun tucked inside his waistband.

On Nov. 14th police obtained an arrest warrant for Sirleaf and charged him with first-degree murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and conspiracy to commit first-degree assault.  Sirleaf was arrested on Nov. 16th  and he is currently being held without bond.

Police also obtained an arrest warrant on Nov. 14th for Gregg, charging him with possession of a firearm by a minor. Gregg was arrested on Nov. 16th when he was found in a stolen vehicle in Germantown. Gregg  is being held without bond.

    Keep them locked up, I don’t want to hear some got 10 years for murder shit. Give Timario Gregg murder charges too, he was there and had a moral responsibility to report his friend to police, but instead he took part. Gregg will get another gun, don’t let him be free. These two black people should be dead, they give a bad name for black people. This is bullshit, they don’t belong to any community and should not be allowed to wander around. GIVE THEM 25 YEARS TO LIFE IN PRISON FOR MURDER EACH ON TOP OF TIME FOR ASSAULT, HOME INVASION, ROBBERY, CONCEALING FIREARMS, UNDERAGE POSSESION, DISCHARGING FIREARM IN POPULATED AREA. Get them on everything you can. IF TIMARIO OR MOHAMMED READ THIS, YOU SHOULD BE IN JAIL AND NOT READING THIS, you don’t want to see me.
