LEXINGTON PARK, MD. –  The Pegg Road leading to Chancellors Run Road from the main gate of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division is becoming known as the Ghetto Bypass as the old downtown of Lexington Park continues to be the scene of shootings, street crimes, and murders.  St. Mary’s Sheriff Tim Cameron hoodwinked the St. Mary’s County Commissioners into funding a six-million-dollar Sheriff’s station on Great Mills Road which serves few other purposes than being a secure facility for deputies to use the restroom.

Ghetto-Trifecta shooting leaves one player dead of lead poisoning

A Ghetto-Trifecta shooting took place at Westbury Blvd. and Pegg Road just about rush hour on January 12, 2022, as heavy traffic was present on Great Mills Road, Chancellors Run Road, and Pegg Road.

On Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at 3:21 p.m. deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department responded to Pegg Road, in the area of Westbury Boulevard in Lexington Park,
for the reported shooting. Deputies arrived on the scene and located two male victims suffering from gunshot wounds.

Sheriff spokeswoman Julie Yingling says lifesaving measures were attempted, but a 19-year-old victim from Lexington Park was pronounced deceased on the scene. A 17-year-old victim, also from Lexington Park, was flown to an area trauma center for treatment. Detectives and crime lab personnel from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene and continued the investigation.
Preliminary investigation determined the victims were traveling in a vehicle in the area of Pegg Road and Watt Drive in Lexington Park when they were shot. The vehicle continued onto Westbury Boulevard and ultimately came to a rest after striking the median.

Westbury subdivision was developed between 2002 and 2012 as a mix of single-family homes and townhouses. Ironically, the neighborhoods near the scene of the shooting are comfortable homes with middle-income families, many of which work at Pax River NAS and for defense contractors.
