On September 22, 2022, at 5:12 a.m., Deputy Fleenor responded to the 21900 block of Baja Lane in Lexington Park, for the reported gunshots. Contact was made with the victim who notified Reginald Tre Brown, 31 of Lexington Park, arrived at the residence in a vehicle and brandished a shotgun. Brown pointed the gun at the victim and another individual and fired a shot as the victims fled on foot. Brown then got into a vehicle and left the area.
Deputies quickly located the unoccupied vehicle used by Brown at a residence in the 21900 block of Rosewood Terrace in Lexington Park. Brown was confirmed to be inside the residence and was eventually arrested without issue within an hour of the incident, and a shotgun was recovered.
Brown was transported to St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Leonardtown and charged with two counts of first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Brown remains incarcerated at the detention center without bail.
