Akeem J. Cayo, 21, was shot and killed by D.C. Police in a shootout as he and two others tried to flee the scene of a home invasion robbery in a home near Catholic University on Sunday night. Cayo and two other assailants, Davon Sealy, 19, and Steffan Fields, 21, of Gaithersburg, went to the home to buy weed.  Six roommates living in the house and four of their guests were in the house about 10:30 p.m. when the three burst into the house, clad in black with masks over their faces and wearing black gloves. Fields threatened to kill everyone in the house and proceeded to assault several people by kicking them as they lay on the ground. Someone managed to call 911 and police arrived and surrounded the house at 10:40 pm. All three assailants attempted to make a run for it about 11:10 pm. Cayo, armed with a semi-automatic pistol exchanged gunfire with police and was shot dead at the scene. Sealy was shot at the back of the house and died five hours later at the hospital.

Akeem Cayo maintained a profile on Model Mayhem (portfolio) and last logged in on February 8th. On his profile, he stated:

I am an outgoing person and ready to take on new adventures.

He also maintained a Facebook profile where he listed Scarface among his favorite movies. His profile also indicated he graduated Mundy’s Mill High School in 2007 and attended Montgomery College Rockville. An online published account indicates Cayo may have had a tough time finding work. In an article dated February 3, 2010, Maryland’s Gazette wrote:

From jobs in retail to restaurants, Akeem Cayo of Gaithersburg has applied for just about everything since November. Cayo, 20, moved back in with his mother after spending almost three years in Georgia with his father. While he was a senior in high school in Georgia, Cayo worked as a waiter at a restaurant, but he was laid off. He said he grew tired of working for moving companies and at other odd, inconsistent employers.

“This is a chance to get a job,” Cayo said as he sat, twiddling his thumbs. “I’m scared of rejection. I’m hoping they give me a chance.”

    They didn’t go there to buy weed. This article is incorrect.

    • You’re probably right. Most people probably don’t go buy weed with mask, gloves, and pistols. They probably had no intention of paying.

    I am not saying my Cousin is wrong for what he did but to call him names to all of you who write shit like that ya’ll will go to hell. In life no matter what we do wrong, we are not suppose to talk down on others because everybody in this world including your own famikey has done some type of dirt. I even bet ya’ll can’t even think to do all the goods things he has done including starting a business. Ignorant fucks, even so call good people like JFK fornicated with other women while married and used money he  has known that his father got from crime. If anybody has something bad to say about my cousin,my brother, my friend and most importantly GODS child come to 1245 Kossuth st Bridgeport, CT 06608 and ask for me Jelanee S. Allen GOD bless you all
