Frederick police are looking for a man who fired shots into the door of an apartment Sunday morning, according to a department press release issued Monday.
Shortly before 9:30 a.m. Sunday, residents of an apartment in the 200 block of Appleton Place confronted an unknown man who had walked into the apartment, the release states. The occupants told the man to leave and escorted him out the door, but the man turned around and kicked and banged on the door in what the residents believed was an attempt to get back inside.
