Baltimore County police believe the two men involved in the fight knew each other before the shooting.

The suspect, Jonathan Clay Hickey, 28, of the 7500 block of North Point Road, has been charged with first- and second-degree murder and is held without bond. Hickey does not have an attorney listed in online court records.

Officers responded to the 7500 block of North Point Road in Edgemere just after 2 a.m. Sunday. Boemmel, the victim, was in critical condition while he was being transported to the hospital and medics began treating him for “at least one” gunshot wound to the upper body.

Police said Hickey stayed at the scene and was taken to police headquarters for questioning.
