Two Silver Spring men have been arrested and charged with the killing of an 18-year-old in Germantown late last year, according to Montgomery County police.

Kairee Deyonte Dorsey, 27, and Christopher Arthur Breeden Jr., 23, had allegedly shot and killed Andrew Turner in his apartment and stole marijuana from him on Dec. 16, police said.

When police arrived at Turner’s apartment in the 12900 block of Falling Water Circle at about 4:30 p.m. that day, officers found the teen suffering from a gunshot wound and later pronounced him dead.

According to police, Turner had allegedly been selling marijuana from his apartment. Detectives believe Breeden and Dorsey traveled from Silver Spring to Turner’s home on the day of his death.

Montgomery County police arrested Dorsey, of the 13600 block of Sir Thomas Way, during a traffic stop on Feb. 28, charging him with carrying a handgun, and possession of Oxycodone and counterfeit currency, among other charges, according to a police press release. Police then searched Dorsey’s home and found evidence allegedly tying him to the homicide.

Early this month, police obtained an arrest warrant for Breeden, of the 11200 block of Lockwood Drive, in connection to the murder, and he was arrested in Columbia on March 7 and transported to Montgomery County. Police did not specify how they linked Breeden to the crime. Dorsey was charged with the murder on March 8, while he was still in custody for the drug and weapon charges.

Dorsey and Breeden were charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Breeden is being held without bail while Dorsey is scheduled for bail review at 1 p.m. Tuesday in the Montgomery County District Court in Rockville.
