Landover man charged in deaths of 3 at restaurant
Prince George's County police yesterday arrested a 21-year-old Landover man in connection with the fatal shooting of three men on Super Bowl Sunday at a Largo restaurant.
The suspect, Tron Stephan Johnson, of the 2100 block of Ohio Avenue, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, police said.
Investigators think Mr. Johnson was with another man but was the shooter in the incident, which started as a fistfight Sunday at about 9 p.m. in the bar section of Uno’s Chicago Grill in the Boulevard at Capital Centre mall.
Reports from some of the roughly 75 customers suggested that the fight might have started over gambling, although the football game was the prime interest among the patrons.
But “there is no confirmation the game was a factor,” said police spokesman Cpl. Stephen Pacheco.
He said investigators are still trying to determine whether the victims knew the attackers.
Customers said the shooter killed Terrance Lynne Sneed, 22, of Hyattsville, and Curtis Lee Poston, 26, of Temple Hills, in the bar area. Then the two attackers followed Charles Dontee Harrison, 23, also of Landover, outside and shot him.
The suspects drove away in a red Dodge Charger. Police yesterday did not indicate that Mr. Johnson was driving the vehicle when arrested.
Cpl. Pacheco said investigators continue to look for the second man and a semiautomatic handgun that witnesses have identified as the weapon.
Mr. Johnson was arrested at about 4 p.m. at a gas station in the 7100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Highway, in Glenarden.
Police did not say what information or clues led them to the arrest.
County police Officer Henry Tippett said Monday that the victims “were not able to talk before they died.”
The restaurant is part of a retail complex that replaced the former Capital Centre sports arena. It is outside the Capital Beltway, about one mile east of FedEx Field.
