Two Charged in Shooting Death of 19-Year-Old Silver Spring Man

Montgomery County Police say they have arrested and charged two males, one from Takoma Park and another from Beltsville, with murder in connection with the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Jahiem Rayquan Pinnock of Silver Spring.

“At approximately 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, Montgomery County Police 4th District officers responded to the area of 1000 Good Hope Drive in Cloverly, for the report of a shooting,” reads an MCPD news release. “Multiple witnesses called the Montgomery County Emergency Communications Center (ECC) to report that a male had been shot and the suspects fled in a green Toyota sedan.

“Upon arrival, responding officers located the victim, 19-year-old Jahiem Rayquan Pinnock of Silver Spring, in the parking lot suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. 4th District Officers provided immediate first aid until Montgomery County Fire Rescue arrived. Pinnock was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

“A lookout was placed for the suspect vehicle, a green Toyota sedan with tape near the front bumper. At approximately 3:48 p.m., a 3rd District officer on his way to roll-call and having heard the lookout, spotted the suspect vehicle in the area of southbound New Hampshire Avenue and Jackson Road.

“The driver of the Toyota sedan sped off, as 3rd District officers attempted to make a felony stop on New Hampshire Avenue. The suspect vehicle accelerated, running through a red light at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue and Lockwood Drive, eventually crossing the center median, causing damage to one of its tires. The Toyota sedan came to a stop on Powder Mill Road, and one of the suspects, 20-year-old Glen Ellis, fled on foot. Following a short foot pursuit, Ellis was taken into custody. The driver of the Toyota, 19-year-old Jose Angel Calderon Nolasco, was taken into custody without incident.

“Ellis, of Takoma Park, and Calderon Nolasco, of Beltsville, were transported to the Central Processing Unit (CPU), where they have both been charged with murder and await a bond hearing.

“This is an active and ongoing investigation. Detectives from the Major Crimes Division are asking anyone who has information about this homicide to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070 or contact Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
