October 25, 2019 – Homicide Unit detectives charged two men in connection with a now fatal assault that took place in March of 2018. They are identified as 31-year-old Bryan Bullock of the 4100 block of Southern Avenue in Capitol Heights and 60-year-old James Moore Jr., of the 7100 block of Buchanan Road in Temple Hills. They are facing charges for assaulting the victim, 38-year-old Leroy Evans, Jr., of Temple Hills. Evans died of his injuries earlier this year.
On March 29, 2018, patrol officers responded to the 6200 block of Allentown Road for the report of an assault. Officers discovered Evans unresponsive on the sidewalk. He was rushed to a hospital for treatment. He was later transferred to a nursing facility where he remained until his death on May 1, 2019. In May of 2019, PGPD detectives identified and arrested Bullock and Moore for the initial assault. They were ordered held on a no-bond status.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner performed an autopsy on the victim. In late August, his death was ruled a homicide due to complications from head trauma.
This month, the charges against the suspects were amended to include common law murder, in addition to first and second assault and reckless endangerment. Bullock and Moore continue to be held on a no-bond status at the Department of Corrections.
The suspects and victim were known to each other. The assault stemmed from a dispute.
