MURDER USA: Killer says he was high on PCP when he shot Uber driver and fellow passenger dead
FORT WASHINGTON, MD. – The killing fields of PG County revealed yet another low-life scum who decided that ingesting PCP was a fun time for him and shooting to death a fellow working as a Uber driver and a fellow passenger sharing a ride was just dandy.
Homicide Unit detectives identified and arrested a Fort Washington man in connection with the double fatal shooting Tuesday evening in Oxon Hill. He is 42-year-old Aaron Lanier Wilson Jr., 43, (DOB 09/30/1976) of 10850 #120, Indian Head Highway, Fort Washington, Md.
Wilson is accused of fatally shooting 46-year-old Beaudouin Tchakounte of Frederick and 32-year-old Casey Xavier Robinson of Accokeek. Tchakounte was operating as an Uber driver at the time of the shooting. Robinson was a passenger in his car.
On August 27th, at approximately 9:45 pm, patrol officers responded to the area of Indian Head Highway and Bald Eagle Road for the report of a shooting. Officers located both victims inside of Tchakounte’s car that was stopped in the roadway. The victims were suffering from gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead on the scene.
Prince Georges County Police say that the preliminary investigation reveals Tchakounte picked up Robinson and later picked up Wilson as part of a ride-share option offered through Uber at separate locations.
Through various investigative techniques, perhaps through the Uber App on the killer’s phone, detectives quickly identified Wilson as the suspect.
Wilson was arrested at his home early on Aug. 28, 2019, and allegedly confessed to being picked up and being inside the vehicle.
Police say that Wilson also told detectives that he was high on PCP. At this point in the investigation, there are no known connections between the victims and Wilson. Wilson is charged with first- and second-degree murder.
Wilson was installed in the PG County Jail pending a preliminary hearing on Sept. 27, 2019.
Wilson was charged with robbery, armed carjacking and other gun offenses in 1987 and on April 17, 1998, in a plea deal with the Prince Georges County States Attorney Jack Johnson, Wilson entered an Alford plea to robbery with all other counts dropped. Circuit Court Judge Spellbring sentenced Wilson to five years in prison as of Jan. 9, 1998 with credit given for 98 days of time served while awaiting trial.
