City Police Crusier

A Frederick police cruiser.

Frederick police are investigating a shooting at a party Friday night that left one person in critical condition.

Officers were called to the 1700 block of Carriage Way around 10:40 p.m. for a report of a shooting, according to a Frederick Police Department (FPD) press release. When officers arrived, they learned that there had been a large party and that a person had been shot.

The victim was transported to a local trauma center and was listed in critical condition Saturday morning, according to the release.

Police said there was no report of an altercation before the shooting and they found no evidence that the shooting was gang-related, according to the release. Police believe there were several witnesses but they left the scene prior to police arriving. Police are trying to identify and speak with those witnesses.

Anyone with information about the shooting or those who may have surveillance cameras of the area are encouraged to contact police on the department’s non-emergency number at 301-600-2100. Tipsters can also call the department’s anonymous voicemail at 301-600-TIPS (8477), the text tip line at 240-674-TIPS (8477), or the email tip line at
