Three young people from Bowie are accused in last weekend's fatal shooting of a man in Anne Arundel County's Gambrills, which police say was a random robbery.

Andrew Samir Mehany Kolta, 28, of the Beacon at Waugh Chapel apartment complex, was identified as the man found shot in the parking lot of his apartment complex at 11:36 p.m. Sunday.

After interviewing several witnesses, detectives identified Dwayne Stephen Commock, 18, of Aspen Leaf Drive in Bowie, as a suspect.

The announcement was made Friday.

Commock was wanted on a warrant for violating probation in Garrett County. Police arrested him Thursday in Silver Spring without incident.

Two other suspects were identified as Shamar Terrence Hamm, 22, of Plumwood Court in Bowie, and Celeste Maureen Long, 20, of Early Glow Lane in Bowie,

All are charged with first-degree and second-degree murder of Andrew Kolta.

"This investigation revealed this was a crime of opportunity/random act of violence as the facts indicated it to be a citizen robbery/murder," said Anne Arundel County police in a statement Friday.

Anyone with more information on the crime is urged to call 410-222-4731. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may contact the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line 410-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers.
