Police said they identified McClary as the man involved in a dispute on Sept. 18 with Karl Richard Shurger, 59, of Glen Burnie at the intersection of Oak Manor Drive and Woodhill Drive. Both men lived near the site.

A witness told police that they saw a man get out of a vehicle and punch another man in the face, knocking him to the ground. The victim, later identified as Shurger, struck his head on the pavement. He was taken to an area hospital. His assailant fled before police arrived.

When police identified McClary and interviewed him, he told them he had gotten into argument with Shurger at a nearby convenience store, then followed the older man in a vehicle as he walked away.

McClary admitted to stopping the car, getting out and punching Shurger in the head, police said. He then drove off.

Shurger died on Sept. 27, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore issued a report Friday finding that he died because of head injuries sustained in the assault. The office ruled Shurger’s death a homicide.

Police obtained an arrest warrant and took McClary into custody without incident.

An investigation is continuing.
