Andover Lane vehicles

Photos of the two vehicles involved in the pursuit where shots were fired.

A chase involving two cars and multiple gunshots late last week remained under investigation by Frederick police detectives Tuesday, according to a department press release.

The dangerous pursuit was reported at 5:50 p.m. Friday in the 1500 block of Andover Lane where several witnesses described a red sport utility vehicle tailing a black sedan while an occupant of the SUV fired a gun several times at the sedan, the release states. While police were able to confirm that a firearm was discharged based on witness accounts, home surveillance footage and other evidence, no injuries were reported and no property damage was found as a result of the gunfire, according to the release.

A parked car was damaged near Applecreek Road when it was struck by the black sedan, which continued to flee the area without stopping, according to the release.

Anyone with information about this incident was asked to call Detective Tyler Deatrich at 240-549-4541.

What’s allowed to happen will continue to happen. Frederick county is a gang bangers sanctuary county.

C.D.Reid

Just what, exactly, Plumbum, are you saying is being "allowed to happen?" And who are you saying is allowing what ever the hell you're babbling about to happen? Huh? You got something to say? Put up or shut up.

JohnSchaeffer1

Not to worry, when we Defund the Police these things wont happen.

KellyAlzan

Gang Bangers dream come true.

Gun violence is increasing across the country and Frederick is no exception. Could it be because more than 2.3 million guns were sold in June this year - a 145 percent increase from 2019? Small Arms Analytics and Forecasting (SAAF) examines the raw data obtained from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System and estimates that approximately 2,387,524 guns were sold in June 2020. No one should be surprised that incidents involving guns are increasing in Frederick.

MD1756

An improper analysis of national data used to draw a preconceived conclusion at the local level. It more likely has to do with the people that are moving into the county, or worse upbringing of people that already were living in the county. Maybe even more of a relation to the fact that MD eliminated the death penalty for any crime.

jerseygrl42

well said , the writer above is clueless

DickD

The death penalty has never been a deterrent, what is needed is more guns off the street, especially hand guns. Frankly, I see little reason for allowing any semi or fully automatic long guns. If you can't hit what you are aiming at you shouldn't be hunting. And bolt, lever or pump actions are plenty fast and just as much fun for target practice.

gabrielshorn2013

Dick, do you just copy and paste the same argument each time? Where does any private citizen use a fully automatic rifle for anything, let alone hunting? You are required to register such firearms, pay a license fee to own one, and it had to be made before 1986. They go for north of $40K, if you can even find someone willing to sell theirs. When was the last time a fully-auto firearm was involved in a crime? They are collector’s items. ATF knows where each and every one of such guns are located. As for semi-autos, my Benelli 12-gauge that I use for duck hunting is semi-auto, and has a five shot tubular magazine. Semi-autos are superior for target acquisition after firing. I have to slowly reload, one shell at a time, the same as my bolt, lever, and pump action rifles. Nobody is going on a rampage with such a gun. Semi-autos also allow disabled hunters to participate in hunting. Should they be told “tuff luck pal” and not be able to hunt if they so choose?

C.D.Reid

Dich, smh. You want more guns off the streets? Then go out and collect them. The cops have too much common sense to know that'll ever happen.

MD1756

In my opinion it is not a deterrent because it wasn't used enough. It certainly prevented recidivism.

While bolt action is fun to shoot so is semiautomatic and so are flintlocks. They all present different challenges which to me are fun for different reasons. So was shooting a 6 pounder, live.

For home defense (and general target practice) I have a ruger 22 target pistol (because it is cheap to shoot) if I could get it and load it fast enough, otherwise it is my 2nd model Brown Bess with a bayonet on it which would do much more damage, but force me to be within about ten feet of an intruder to then lunge and skewer the intruder if they didn't surrender. I'd prefer the Ruger first, as it is less risk to me, however one shot from a 22 may not be enough and thus the need for semiautomatic unless I want to use my rifled flintlock pistol to hit them over the head.

C.D.Reid

And, once again, you're wrong Dick. The death penalty is the best deterrent. Name one person who's been executed and then repeated his offense afterwards.

bosco

Didn't Lee Harvey Oswald use a bolt action? [ninja]

MD1756

Bosco, I'll go one better. Booth used a percussion cap derringer to kill Lincoln.

fredneck

We don't have a gun problem...we have a people problem.

C.D.Reid

That reminds me of when Keith Richards said "I don't have a drug problem, I have a police problem." [lol]

pittsmom04

Dumbest thing I've read all week. Give me a break

KellyAlzan

Again. More gang bangers in the area.

Regardless if this was in the city, the city is in the county. And i recall then candidate Trumpkins making a promise that if elected “I will go after the gangs”. His words. His promise.

And so far - he’s done nothing to fulfill that promise. So sad.

gabrielshorn2013

In your oh so humble opinion Pb. Talking about not letting things go [lol][lol][lol]

C.D.Reid

The thing is, gabe, Pb keeps saying that the sheriff promised "to go after the gangs," (quote from Pb, herself.) He may or have may not said that, I don't know, but at no time has she ever claimed that the sheriff said he would eliminate gang activity in the county. She just keeps saying that he said he would "go after" them. And he has done just that, evidenced by the gang members he's turned over to ICE. I'm still trying to figure out why she has this fixation with making a fool of herself so often...... Go figure.

gabrielshorn2013

Agreed CD. At times Pb also stated that there were no gangs in Frederick, so is the Sheriff guilty of not going after a problem she said doesn't exist? So her problem with that would be.......?

KellyAlzan

A leader’s promise and your obsession with me and Dick are two different things. Amazing how someone as smart as you doesn’t understand that?

gabrielshorn2013

Well, after your little "Freudian slip" the other day, it seems that you are the one obsessed with Dick, Pb. As for you, I am amazed at your propensity to habitually lie time and time again. You have an unhealthy obsession with anything the Sheriff does. Stalker?

KellyAlzan

GH - sad that your ok with broken promises. So sad. You may not mind being mislead by politicians, but others do.

I have a hunch I’m the only hunan that has interacted with u this evening. Hopefully it won’t be much longer till someone special comes along in your life :)

gabrielshorn2013

Nah, I interacted (devoured actually) the Hunan chicken I prepared for my family tonight. Delicious 😋. You are just something I keep on the side. You can't keep your Sheriff stories straight anymore. Is there, or is there not a gang issue in Frederick? You have argued both sides. "Going after the gangs" hardly means eliminating them, no matter what you believe, The MSP and FBI are also"going after the gangs", so I don't see any broken promise there.

C.D.Reid

Apparently Pb doesn't know the difference between a politician and a LEO.

C.D.Reid

FNP Moderator, in direct violation of Comment Rule #8, KellyAlzan has posted here repeatedly over the years that Sheriff Jenkins had promised to go after the gangs. Therefore it's my opinion that she should be reprimanded for it with a future suspension of her posting privileges in order if she does not cease to do so.

jerseygrl42

your comments are absolutely false...too much CNN for you

Retired and Bored

This looks like rival gang feuding possibly for territory or something else. Frederick city is very different since I moved here 30 years ago. Then, I had no problem going on Route 40, now you wouldn't catch me out there after dark. Hopefully, Law Enforcement finds a way to nip this in the bag and the "powers that be" don't wuss out and Frederick becomes another Portland.

shiftless88

So you are some sort of expert on gang behavior now? I go on Route 40 after dark and have had no issues. I suspect your fears are overblown.

C.D.Reid

Are you saying someone has to be an "expert" on a subject to offer a personal opinion on it?

bosco

A conservative is a liberal who hasn't been mugged yet.

[ninja]

C.D.Reid

You got that right bosco.

phydeaux994

A Conservative is a Liberal that is too scared to go out to places where they might see a minority person out to kill them. That’s o.k., stay under the covers a post a thousand comments a day on the FMP Opinion Forum.😱

C.D.Reid

Hey bosco, did you hear something around 10:08 last night?

bosco

Just the cicadas. [lol][ninja]

Paul Sobus

Frederick has changed since I fell in love with it in the late 1960's

TomWheatley

The story reads like a 1930s gangster movie chase scene but without submachine guns and in newer cars.

phydeaux994

Frederick has changed in the last 50 years?? I agree, it’s a lot better now!! Especially in the last 10.

C.D.Reid

Frederick sucks now, especially the last ten years. And it's mostly because of transplants from MoCo and P.G. Co.

mikec

Agree. All of the transplants used to make fun of "Fredneck" back in the day. I miss "Fredneck." It's a lot better than the new Frederick, which is more like Germantown or Gaithersburg. Bunch of drones driving to Starbucks and Target, ugh.

Dwasserba

But...but...if you deign to sleep here nights you are bringing enlightenment and raising the standard of living by bestowing your presence.

bosco

Maybe because of the 287g program helping get rid of criminal illegals. We are not hearing much about MS-13 lately. Could be ICE sent them home.[alien]

C.D.Reid

For the record, I AM NOT A RACIST!

mikec

The last ten years have been the worst. It's made me want to move. Too much traffic, too much construction, too much crime, and too many people. I liked Frederick when it was more farms and green space and less Ryan Homes.

shiftless88

mikec; was your family here since the dawn of time? If not, then the people who were hear when your family arrived probably complained then about the "new" people coming in and making farms out of woodlands.

C.D.Reid

How long have you been here, shiftless? Long enough to remember the 50s and 60s when things were so much more peaceful here? Or are you one of the reasons why this once fine county has gone to hell in a hand basket?

MD1756

shiftless, And the inhabitants (wildlife) here before the first humans came here (since humans are not indigenous to this continent) probably complained "There goes the neighborhood."

phydeaux994

P.G., Montgomery, Howard, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William Counties and even D.C. all had more farms and green space back in the forties and fifties and sixties and hated it when the Urban Sprawl began. Frederick County saw it inching toward them since that time and those Counties started putting long range Comprehensive Development Plans in place to control it, Howard being the most successful with it.

Not Frederick County, even when Sprawl crossed the County line into Urbana around 2000 or so, 20 years ago. I don’t think Frederick County/City has one yet. Blame Blain, Kirby, and Billy for giving away the farm to Developers.

sevenstones1000

It has changed. There’s not so many Klan posters and flyers around.

Dwasserba

That's true! They used to randomly turn up in the driveway, under the mailbox flag or on the windshield parked downtown. Once when we were in church.

DickD

CD is storing them up to use later [lol]

C.D.Reid

No need to store them up, Dick. I just print them out as I need them. [wink]

jerseygrl42

....and not for the better

C.D.Reid

Yep, Fredneck's transition to 'Lil Baltmer.

fnpreader123

Nah this screams "road rage incident" to me

C.D.Reid

Yeah, could be. [thumbup]

Greg F

Nah...Lil' Baltimore would be Hagerstown....
