A Bowie teenager has been arrested and charged in the murder of his father at a Prince George’s County park Friday 26 July 2019.

Barba Koroma, 17, of Bowie, was charged Saturday morning with first- and second-degree murder in the killing of 62-year-old Barba Koroma, of Bowie.

The younger Koroma is being charged as an adult.

According to Prince George’s County police, the 17-year-old stabbed his father while the latter was driving during a dispute Friday at Allen Pond Park in the 3300 block of Northview Drive in Bowie. The vehicle, an SUV, then crashed into a fence at which time the younger Koroma dragged his father into a nearby wooded area.

Officers who responded to the area around 4:30 p.m. located the elder Koroma on the ground suffering from trauma to the body in the wooded area, where he was pronounced dead at the scene.
