Waterside Drive Shooting

Frederick Police Department crime scene technicians survey the area in the 900 block of Mosby Drive off Waterside Drive, where an adult male victim had been shot in the upper body while in a vehicle. He was transported to a local trauma facility with injuries that are not life-threatening. Window were shattered in at least two vehicles.

A Sunday afternoon shooting in Frederick left one person injured, according to the Frederick Police Department, in an incident authorities are saying is not random.

The victim, a teenage male, had been released from the hospital by Monday evening.

Frederick Police Lt. Andrew Alcorn said the suspect and victim likely knew each other.

Around 4:10 p.m., FPD officers responded to a report of a firearm discharge in the 900 block of Mosby Drive.

When officers got to the scene, they found the male victim who had been shot.

Witnesses said that “as the victim parked his vehicle, the suspect pulled up and discharged a firearm in his direction,” according to FPD.

The suspect left the area in a silver sedan.

People who were in the area and saw something unusual or who have cameras in the area are asked to contact FPD. People who contact the tip line will remain anonymous. To leave a voicemail, contact 301-600-TIPS (8477). To leave a text message, contact 240-674-TIPS (8477), and to send an email, contact fpdcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org.
