Department officials said that on November 18, 2019, officers responded to the Morris Hill Community on the outskirts of Baltimore for a shooting. When officers arrived, they found the victim, 28-year-old Xavier Green, known by his family and friends as “X”, on the back porch of his Morris Avenue home, according to investigators. Xavier had been fatally shot, and he was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Detectives believe there are dozens of eyewitnesses to the homicide of nineteen-year-old Justin Keith Beasley Jr. 

Police said that on Sunday, July 5, 2020, at approximately 12:40 a.m., the Anne Arundel County Police Department responded to the 1600 block of Cananaro Drive in Annapolis.  According to a police press release, officers arrived and encountered a large crowd of people from an apparent party taking place.
