In a press release, police said they charged Troy Cleveland, Jr., 28, of District Heights, with fatal shooting of Sean Spence, 46.



According to police, on November 20, 2019, officers responded to the 5700 block of Rollins Lane in the unincorporated section of Capitol Heights for a shooting around 7:30 p.m.
