The charges stem from a Dec. 18 double shooting in the 9400 block of Woodsong Court.

Kaiyon Stanfield, 20, of Columbia was injured in the shooting and died at Shock Trauma late last week.

Khalil Stanfield, 21, of Silver Spring was found a short distance away suffering from gunshot wounds. He has since been discharged from the hospital.

Police plan to amend charges from attempted murder to murder.

Investigators found drugs at the scene and believe the shooting may have been drug related.
