Mother of Teen Shot and Killed in Home Last Year Pleas for Information

Montgomery County Police Department is still investigating the killing of 18-year-old Damion Callery Jr. that occurred on Aug. 17, 2019.

Callery’s mother, Cherrell Callery, has made a plea for anyone with information on what happened to call the anonymous police number in order to help their family in getting closure.

“This is a real tragedy for us and it’s very hard to know that the person is still out there,” said Callery’s mother. “Any information will help us.”

Callery was shot and killed inside his home on the 14100 block of Angelton Terrace in Burtonsville at about 3:43 a.m. Police believe Callery had encountered an armed suspect or suspects in his backyard when he was shot.

He was killed days before he was supposed to start college at Bowie State University.

The crime is believed to not have been random and police think the suspects responsible live near the home of Callery in which he was shot, according to Capt. Tom Jordan.

Jordan urged the public to call Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070 or the Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-8477 with any information on the case.
