MPD said in a release Monday that
On Monday, August 22, 2011, members from the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 24 year-old Sergio Waynes of Silver Spring Maryland, pursuant to a DC Superior Court warrant charging him with Carrying a Pistol without a License (CPWL) in an unrelated case. Subsequently, at 4:45 am, he was charged by the Homicide Branch for First Degree Murder while Armed in the double homicide.
Today a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office said his office “did not file murder charges against” Waynes but that the case remains open and under investigation.
MPD has not yet returned a request for comment.
Waynes is currently in custody and awaiting a preliminary hearing on a charge of carrying a pistol without a license on Aug. 17.
