MURDER USA Alando Pugh Died After Three Days from Gunfire Administered in Southwest DC; Released from PG County Jail on No Bail Two Weeks Earlier

WASHINGTON, D.C.  A man that was an aspiring amateur boxer was found suffering from multiple gunshots on August 15, 2023, and died at a local hospital on Sunday, August 20, 2023, according to District Police.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch reported that they are investigating a homicide that occurred on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, in the Unit block of Galveston Place, Southwest.

District Police say that at approximately 1:51 am on August 15th, Seventh District officers responded to the listed location for the report of a shooting and located an adult male shooting victim. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and transported the victim to an area hospital, where despite all lifesaving efforts, the victim succumbed to his injuries on Saturday, August 19, 2023.


The decedent has been identified as 40-year-old Alando Pugh (DOB 11/09/1982) of 6858 Riverdale Road, Riverdale, Md. 

PG Police charged Pugh with malicious property destruction and second-degree assault for an incident that took place in Prince George’s County on November 13, 2022.  When Pugh failed to appear in District Court for a hearing, District Court Judge Brian Denton issued a bench warrant for his arrest.  On July 31, 2023, just two weeks before his murder, he was ordered released from jail in PG County by Judge Dolores Dorsainvil without having to post bail.

Pugh didn’t throw his punches, only in the ring, as he pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and burglary in Prince Georges County Circuit Court on October 8, 2010, by way of Alford Pleas, which means he admitted the States Attorney had enough evidence to convict him. In the plea deal with Prince Georges County States Attorney Glenn F. Ivey (Now a Maryland Member of Congress), he was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Nicholas Rattal to two years in prison with all but 435 days suspended.  In 2004, Pugh entered another Alford Plea in PG County to assault and picked up about a year in the slammer.

The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for each homicide committed in the District of Columbia. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by sending a text message to 50411.
