A 35-year-old man who police say fatally shot one man and injured another before fleeing has turned himself in after an overnight manhunt.
The incident happened around 2 p.m. Monday at a home in the 6000 block of Port Tobacco Road in Nanjemoy, Md., about an hour south of Washington. The Charles County Sheriff’s Office said it believes Brian Pierce shot two men after an argument. One of the victims died and the other man is in serious condition, according to law enforcement officials.
Police said Pierce left and later abandoned his car in the area. He then fled, possibly in a vehicle, on foot or by boat, they said. Residents in that area were advised by authorities to keep their doors locked and report any suspicious activity to police.
Authorities said Pierce surrendered to officers around 8 a.m. Tuesday at a police station in La Plata, Md.
Police did not release the name of the man who was killed, pending the notification of his family.
