Waterside Homicide

A 19-year-old man has died after being shot Sunday evening while on a walking path behind Waterview Court in the Waterside community.

The Sunday night shooting in the Waterside community near Frederick is now being investigated as a homicide after the victim in the case died Wednesday at R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Jaemari Anderson, 19, of Frederick, died after suffering a gunshot wound. Detectives with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office are awaiting the results of an autopsy being performed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death.

Anderson was found injured Sunday night along a walking path behind Waterview Court in Waterside. Sheriff’s deputies and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded to the scene just before 9 p.m., and Anderson was flown to Shock Trauma.

Although no suspects have been identified, the Sheriff’s Office said on Monday it had no reason to believe it was a random act of violence against Anderson.

The investigation is still ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Jason Brady at 301-600-7134 or Jbrady@frederickcountymd.gov.

Information and tips can also be sent to FCSOtips@frederickcountyMD.gov, and callers can remain anonymous by calling the Sheriff’s Office tip line at 301-600-4131.

how come the comments are not in order of time received? Sure would make it easier to follow along the tit for tat comments


Good question Reader1954.

With forum software, like vBulletin, all posts/comments ARE in chronological order. Also, the background (wallpaper) color alternates to clearly differentiate each post.

Of course there are many other helpful feature as well -- a powerful search function; a "table of contents" of sorts showing all individual threads -- in this case with the FNP it would be headlines and dates. There is a private messaging feature. It is very easy to post large, hi-res photos, etc, etc.

I keep hoping the FNP will see the immense potential benefit in switching to a forum format. They would surely get more subscriptions, clicks, and page views, and more lively discussions.


Any minute now we will hear from someone who says that Frederick is just like Mayberry, and the crime rate is actually very low.

So fire up those dozers and 'build baby build'! More people is surely the solution -- right?


Yep, the solution to more crime. pollution, lost farm land, etc.


So much Crime in our county.

What is Sherf Trumpkins plan to curtail it?

What solutions does Trumpkins have to stop it?


Gee Pb, why don't you just ask him? He's a very accessible person. (But you knew that, didn't ya?)


Is Waterside in the City or the County Pb? If the former, shouldn't you be asking Patrick Grossman? Here is his contact information:

Patrick Grossman

Acting Chief of Police

Email pgrossman@frederickmdpolice.org

If you truly are interested, here is the link to the FPD website:


Glad to help.


Two Commenters here trolling me. This isn’t FPD’s case. And all cities and town in the county are in the county and are eligible for all the public services the county provides


Plumbum, don't flatter yourself. No one is trolling you, we're just offering suggestions as to how you can get all your questions answered. Sheriff Jenkins is a very accessible official, his contact info is readily available online. There is no reason why you can't contact him yourself to get answers to any questions you have with regards as to how he runs his office, info on on-going cases, and any suggestions you may have as to how he can do his job better to your satisfaction. No thanks necessary, you're welcome.


I find it puzzling that they find no evidence that it was random. I would guess that, by its very nature, random cannot be ruled out offhand.


Agreed shiftless, I was thinking the same thing.


Please stop the violence


I'm not sure if asking politely will work, but it is worth a shot. (No pun intended.)
