Fugitive apprehension detectives are searching for a Crownsville man who police say was responsible for a targeted double shooting in Edgewater on Saturday, which left a 53-year-old man dead and another man in the hospital with gunshot injuries, Anne Arundel County police said.
Ronal Alcidis Maldonado Quijada, of Middletown Road in Annapolis, was identified by police Monday as the man killed in the shooting. Police have not released the identity of the 28-year-old man injured in the shooting.
Detectives worked quickly, as police said they’d obtained an arrest warrant for Wilber Oswaldo Nunez-Menendez by Sunday morning. They said evidence and witness interviews pointed to the 25-year-old, who’s now wanted on murder, attempted murder, assault and related firearms charges.
Charges against Nunez-Menedez, of the Summer Hill Trailer Park, do not yet appear in online court records. It’s unclear if there’s an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
Patrol officers and homicide detectives rushed to the 20th block of Brick Church Road around 7 p.m. Saturday after somebody called 911 to report a shooting. The rural road is flanked by foliage on both sides near its intersection with Solomon’s Island Road.
At the scene, police said they found Quijada suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Paramedics pronounced him dead.
Quijada’s body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of his death.
