Police determined the shots fired at two teens outside Frederick High School two weeks ago came from one weapon.
The weapon has not been recovered, said Lt. Clark Pennington, a spokesman for the Frederick Police Department.
Today marks two weeks since two boys, ages 15 and 14, were shot outside the school’s gymnasium during a boys junior basketball game between Frederick and Gov. Thomas Johnson high schools. One teen was shot in the back and the other in the leg.
Police believe the assailants are four male teens wearing dark clothes, but no suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made, Pennington said.
Detectives have interviewed more than 300 people regarding the Feb. 4 shooting, including the roughly 200 people inside Frederick High School at the time, according to Pennington.
“This is a significant investigation due to not only the number of individuals on scene, which was 200-plus people, but we’ve also been following up with victims and witnesses,” Pennington said.
The department has also been working with the two wounded teens, who police said knew the assailants, according to Sgt. Aaron Lapp, a spokesman for Frederick police. The teens were released last week from Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after receiving treatment for their injuries, which were not considered life-threatening.
Officials said the two teens were Frederick County Public Schools students but did not specify which school they attend. Michael Doerrer, a spokesman for Frederick County Public Schools, said Tuesday that he did not know whether the teens had returned to school.
However, Frederick and Gov. Thomas Johnson high schools have made an effort to get back to normal, but school administrators and officials are in talks about school security and safety in the future.
“At this point, we haven’t made any specific decisions about what we might do differently moving forward,” Doerrer said.
As police continue to investigate, anyone with information about the shooting or footage of the Feb. 4 boys junior varsity basketball game is asked to call the Frederick Police Department at 301-600-2100.
“This does remain the priority of the Criminal Investigation Division, and detectives are continuously working on this case and have been working on this case,” Lapp said.
