Officers were assisted by the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office in taken these two into custody. Rahim Gibson, 27, was apprehended later that day on North Locust Street in Hagerstown.

Dawkins and Booker are Frederick residents, and Gibson lives in Hagerstown. All three are being held without bond.

They were arrested for the murder of Cody Brian Lynn, 22, of Hagerstown, who was fatally shot on November 12th. “We responded to the 200 block of North Locust for shots fired. When we arrived, we found the victim, 22-year-old Cody Lynn, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds,” says Aleshire.
