Police searching for killer of man living ain retirement community

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. -- Mary Holland is heartbroken after finding her disabled son, 53-year-old Kermit Holland, shot to death in the garage of their home in a quiet senior community, last Friday.

Police say Holland was pronounced dead at the scene.

“He was just a great guy. He was very generous. He never, to my knowledge, ever hurt anybody. I think, whoever did this was just looking for whatever.”, said Holland’s mother.

According to police, Holland’s 2014 black Toyota Rav 4, with Maryland Tags A176667, was stolen from the home.

Wednesday,  police spent time canvassing the area near Vandiver Court for information.

“At this time we are actively looking to establish a suspect and figure out what the motive was that led to him fatally shooting the victim in this incident.”, said Corporal Tyler Hunter with the Prince George’s County Police Department.

A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.

As for her son’s killer, Mary Holland says, “They know what they did so I leave it in God’s hands. I believe they will be found and they will be punished.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Prince George’s County Police Homicide Unit at the 301-772-4925 or PG Crimesolvers.
