Gaithersburg man charged in Norbeck neighborhood slaying -- Gazette.Net


Police have arrested a Gaithersburg man they believe killed Marc St. Aubin and are looking for others they say stole items from his home in a Norbeck neighborhood.

Tavon Antonio Miles, 26, of the 19600 block of Framingham Drive in Gaithersburg, was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, and armed robbery on Saturday. An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide. According to a news release, St. Aubin had blunt force injuries and a stab wound.

On March 3 at about 10:30 p.m., officers responded to a home in the 15800 block of Laughlin Lane for the report of a shooting. Arriving officers found the body of St Aubin in his driveway. Police say St. Aubin had a gun holster along the small of his back but the gun was missing and has not yet been recovered.

According to the police report, witnesses told them a number of armed suspects entered the home and a struggle began, gunshots were heard, and St. Aubin was injured. Some of the people who were in the home at the time helped to bring St. Aubin to the driveway so he could be driven to the hospital.

At the same time, police said in their release that other witnesses began to remove items from the house, including guns, a safe, and suspected marijuana. Police report recovering bullets from inside the home.

Shortly after arriving on scene March 3, police were notified of a man, now identified as Miles, who was dropped off at a nearby hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. A bullet recovered from Miles’ clothing during medical treatment was compared to the bullets recovered from inside the home, police said. The comparison revealed that all of the recovered projectiles were of the same caliber and fired from the same gun. St. Aubin had a gun of that caliber registered through Maryland.

Miles is being held without bond as police say they work to identify other suspects in this case. Attorney information for Miles was not yet available via an online search. Detectives are asking anyone who has information about this homicide to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070. Callers may remain anonymous.
