A Gaithersburg man has been arrested by Montgomery County homicide detectives who they believed killed Marc St. Aubin. They are also looking for a second person who police say stole items from Aubin’s home on the night Aubin was shot and killed in the driveway at the home in Norbeck .
On Saturday, March 22, homicide detectives located and arrested Tavon Antonio Miles, 26, of the 19600 block of Framingham Drive in Gaithersburg. Miles was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, and armed robbery.
Just after 10:30 pm. on March 3, patrol units from Montgomery Police Department Kensington District were called to the 15800 block of Laughlin Lane just off of Norbeck Road for a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers found the body of St Aubin in his driveway. Police said St. Aubin had a gun holster along the small of his back but the gun was missing and has not yet been recovered.
Witnesses told police a number of armed suspects entered the house and a struggle began. They heard gun fire and St. Aubin was injured. As people were helping St Aubin, others in the house began to remove items from the house, including guns, a safe, and suspected marijuana.
As police officers were arriving on the scene, they were notified of a man, now identified as Miles, who was dropped off at a nearby hospital suffering from gunshot wounds.
According to police officials, a bullet recovered from Miles’ clothing during medical treatment was compared to the bullets recovered from inside the home, police said.

Police said Miles is being held without bond as they work to identify other suspects in this case.
