Update in Downtown Frederick Shooting

The victim was originally listed in stable condition but has been downgraded to critical.

FREDERICK, MD.  (LG)    As the investigation continues by Frederick Police into a shooting that happened in downtown Frederick early Sunday morning, more information is being released by investigators.  “The initial press release stated that the victim was in stable condition after he was found by police with a gunshot wound to his abdomen and taken to an area hospital,” said Lt. Kirk Henneberry.  “Hospital officials now say they man is in critical condition.”

Investigators originally thought they were dealing with one suspect.  “We have talked to a lot of witnesses and are reviewing video from the area to get a good description of the suspects. It does look like we are potentially looking at two suspects, but I can’t confirm that right now. I am confident that there are two people who have the main involvement in it, but I can’t confirm. It could be more or it could be less. But right now, based on what I’ve heard, I think we’re looking for two people, at the minimum,” continued Lt. Henneberry.

“The investigation revealed that there was an argument that had occurred between the victim and the suspects right before the shooting happened. One of my patrol officers was also able to speak to the victim before he was rushed to the hospital for treatment.”

The incident happened in the 100 block of North Market Street, at approximately 1:30 a.m.
