Second Suspect In September Homicide Arrested

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says a third suspect is being sought.









Frederick, Md (KM) A second suspect has been arrested in connection with a homicide in the Waterside development in Frederick. Brian Braheem Henry, 27, of Clarksburg, was taken into custody on Tuesday, according to the Sheriff’s Office. He’s charged with 1st-degree murder, 2nd-degree murder, 1st-degree assault, conspiracy to commit 1st-degree assault, and use of a firearm in a violent crime.

The Sheriff’s Office says these charges stem from the fatal shooting of Jaemari Anderson, 19, of Frederick on September 6th, 2020. He died from his injuries on September 9th.

Authorities on September 11th arrested Jordan Hooks, 27, of Frederick in connection with this homicide. He’s charged with 1st-degree murder. A third suspect, Daniel Alonzo Flythe, 26, of Silver Spring, is still at-large for this murder.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Anderson, Hooks and other individuals were gathered at Hooks’ home on Waterside Court on September 6th. They were smoking marijuana throughout the day and evening.

During that time, investigators say their investigation determined that an argument developed between Hooks and Anderson. The two agreed to a physical fight. As Anderson and Hooks left the room, Hooks pulled a handgun from the couch, and put it in his waistband.

The group left the home and headed toward a walking path in the Waterside development. Witnesses  and neighbors told police they heard a single gunshot and saw people fleeing the area. A single shell casing was found within a few feet of the victim, detectives say.  .

The Sheriff’s Office is still search for Flythe, and anyone who knows of his whereabout is asked to contact Detective Jason Brady, the lead investigator in this case, at 301-600-7134. Authorities say citizens who see Flythe should consider him armed and dangerous, and not attempt to apprehend or detain him.
