Salisbury, MD – On September 28, 2022, after a three-day jury trial presided over by the Honorable S James Sarbanes, Administrative Judge of the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, Drequan Savage of Salisbury, Maryland, was convicted of Second-Degree Murder, First Degree Assault, and the Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony stemming from the murder of Gerald Nash, which occurred on April 7, 2021.
Sentencing was deferred pending the completion of a Pre-Sentence Investigation. Savage will remain in custody pending sentencing. During the morning hours of April 7, 2021, an assailant acting in the direction of Drequan Savage entered through a rear door of a residence on Hill Street in Salisbury, Maryland.
Savage had previously arranged with a second co-conspirator to be notified when the victim arrived at the residence and for the rear door to be left unlocked. Once inside, the assailant entered a bedroom and shot the victim multiple times while he lay in bed.
The victim was transported to Tidal Health, where he died due to gunshot wounds. Wicomico County State’s Attorney (SA) Jamie Dykes, who prosecuted the case, said, “Gun violence remains far too prevalent in our community. The citizens of Wicomico County deserve safe communities free from senseless violence. My Office will continue to work with our law enforcement and community partners to ensure that violent criminals are held accountable and removed from society.”
State’s Attorney Dykes commended the lead investigators, Corporal K. Braightmeyer of the Maryland State Police (MSP) Homicide Unit and Detective R. Smallwood of the Salisbury Police Department, as well as the other members of both the MSP Homicide Unit and the Salisbury Police Department.
Anyone with additional information regarding the murder of Gerald Nash is requested to contact Corporal Kyle Braightmeyer with the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit at 443-480-6818 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
