Frederick Police Investigate Homicide


FREDERICK, MD – At 10:27 p.m. on January 24, 2020, the Frederick Police Department received several calls about gunfire in the area of West All Saints Street and South Bentz Street. Callers reported hearing several shots. Officers arrived and located an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body.

Officers and emergency medical personnel rendered aid to the victim. He was transported to a local hospital. Hospital staff attempted life-saving efforts, but the victim died. The victim’s name is being withheld at this time.

Officers at the scene spoke with several witnesses who reported seeing two potential suspects, most likely males, running eastbound from the area after the shots were fired. Officers and detectives searched the area for evidence and witnesses. This investigation is in the preliminary stages, but investigators believe this incident stemmed from a possible dispute and was not random.

The Frederick Police Department is asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Detective Matt Irons at 240-674-8942. Also, we ask any residents who reside in the surrounding area and have security cameras to review any saved footage from around the time of this incident. Even footage that does not appear useful may contain evidence. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact the department by voicemail at 301-600-TIPS (8477), text message at 240-674-TIPS (8477), or by email fpdcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org.
