Brown is the son of a Prince George's County Police Sergeant assigned to the homicide unit.

Detectives with the Charles County Sheriff's Office say the shooting was "not random" and "appears to be drug-related." 

A Charles County Public Schools spokesperson says Freeman is a senior at Thomas Stone High School in Waldorf. He has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder and other related charges, authorities say. 

A student support team (counselors, psychologists and pupil personnel workers) will be at Thomas Stone High School and North Point High School on Thursday, according to CCPS officials.
