On Wednesday, March 6th, at about 11:25 a.m., the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office received information that an adult male had recently arrived at Frederick Memorial Hospital with a single gunshot wound. Deputies responded to the male’s residence, in the 7100 block of Linganore Road, and were able to detain another adult male without incident.
Sheriff’s Office detectives responded to the scene and interviewed the occupants from the home. Information learned from those interviews indicated that a disagreement escalated into a physical altercation, in which the shooting victim approached the other male and his wife with a blunt object. A search warrant was served at the residence, recovering evidence related to this incident.
The shooting victim was released from the hospital on the same day with non-life-threatening injuries. The case remains open at this time pending further investigation.
