Detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division have arrested a man wanted in connection with a shooting that occurred in October. Jacari Trayvell Long, 22, of Waldorf, was arrested on December 21 after detectives identified him as a suspect in the shooting which occurred on October 27 in the area of Knolewater Court and Bannister Circle. In the shooting, the victim and a friend were walking on the sidewalk when the suspect drove up in a car and fired shots, striking the victim. He was flown to a hospital and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. Detectives pursued leads and subsequently identified Long as the shooter in the case. Detectives obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence and recovered a firearm and drugs.
Long has been charged with first-degree assault, use of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and reckless endangerment.
