Case moves forward in KG double shooting and murder

A joint preliminary hearing in King George Circuit Court last week resulted in charges of murder, attempted murder, and the use of a firearm during the commission of a felony going to a grand jury against Tennage Michel Shanks of King George and Anthony William Goodman of Upper Marlboro, Md.

Judge James Ventura sent the charges to a grand jury after hearing from two witnesses, including Gregory Gaines, Jr., who was a surviving victim of the April 28 shooting and murder. A third person, Michael Andre Clinton of Bladensburg, Md., is being held on other charges in Maryland and will have a hearing at a later date.

The shootings occurred in a rural area of King George County.  Prosecutors said Goodman, 30, and Clinton, 28, bound and shot two King George men, Ronelle Davon Johnson, 20, and Gaines, 20.  Johnson died at the scene; Gaines was treated at Mary Washington Hospital and has recovered.

Gaines testified in court that the defendants tied the two victims up with duct tape, forced them on their knees and then shot them multiple times.  Both Gaines and Johnson, who was Gaines’ cousin, were robbed of their money and cell phones.  According to testimony, Shanks, 42, stayed outside during the shootings and then drove away with the suspects.

A brief disturbance between relatives of the suspects and the victims broke out in the courtroom during the hearing.  Circuit Court bailiffs separated the two groups and removed them from the courtroom.  There were no arrests in connection with that incident.
