At 8:47 p.m. June 15, Charles County Sheriff’s officers responded to the 11700 block of Hemingley Place in Newburg for the report of a shooting. The investigation revealed Derrick Thomas Pulliam, 20, of Brandywine and the victim, a 23-year-old Waldorf man, were attending a gathering when they began to argue.
