The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office is looking to identify a man detectives believe to be involved in Saturday’s shooting at Jackson Chapel United Methodist Church.
The man in the pictures provided by the sheriff’s office is black, with medium-length hair and a beard. He is wearing a white shirt, white pants white and black sneakers and a long, navy coat. His left ear is pierced.
Deputies with the sheriff’s office responded to a shooting at the Jackson Chapel on Ballenger Creek Pike around 2:45 p.m. Saturday. Two people were suffering from what appeared to be gunshot wounds, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.
The two people were taken to the hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
The alleged shooter fled before police arrived, according to the release. A funeral service was occurring at the same time, and the shooting may have happened after an altercation between people at the service, according to the release.
Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Taylor Clarke did not respond to call for comment. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Jennifer Skelley at 301-600-4017. Anonymous tips can also be made to 301-600-4131.
