FPD Detectives investigating a Homicide W. South St.

 

 

FREDERICK, MD – On 02/22/2017 at approximately 2207 hours members of the Frederick Police Department responded to a report of a shooting in the 400 BLK of West South Street.  Upon arrival to the area, Officers located the scene of the incident.  The incident appears to have begun inside an apartment and continued outside.  As the altercation escalated, the suspect identified as Richard Jerome Harriday, displayed a handgun and shot the victim once in the upper body. 

 

Harriday then fled the scene and retreated to a garage located off Hoffman’s Alley.  Harriday locked himself inside the garage for approximately 2 hours.  During that time, Harriday spoke with FPD Negotiators.  Harriday peacefully surrendered to FPD SRT.  He was taken into custody and transported to FPD CID for questioning.  From there Harriday was transported to the FCADC for processing and is awaiting appearance before the District Court Commissioner at this time.

 

At this time FPD is not pursuing any other suspects and do not believe this is a random act of violence.  FPD did recover a handgun during the course of the investigation.
