The Maryland State Police are actively searching for a third suspect, who they believe was involved in a shooting that occurred in Wicomico County yesterday morning.
The deceased victim has been identified as Gerald Nash, 28, of Caroline County, Maryland. Mr. Nash was transported from the scene to Tidal Health Peninsula General, where he was later pronounced deceased. An autopsy is pending on Mr. Nash.
Police have arrested two of the three suspects and have identified them as Leslie Teo, 25, and Drequan Savage, 27, both of Salisbury, Maryland. They were arrested last night by Maryland State Police and Officers from the Salisbury City Police Department without incident.
Teo is charged with first and second degree murder. Savage is charged with first and second degree murder, first and second degree assault and other criminal charges. Both are being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center without bond.
Yesterday, Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators were contacted by the Salisbury City Police Department and requested to investigate a shooting. The preliminary investigation indicated that shortly after 10:30 a.m., officers from the Salisbury City Police Department were called to the 600 block of Hill Street in Salisbury for the shooting. Upon arrival, they located the victim, later identified as Nash, with an apparent gunshot wound.
EMS personnel responded and the victim was transported to Tidal Health Peninsula General. He underwent treatment there until he was pronounced deceased. An autopsy is pending at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.
Police believe Teo and Savage were assisted by one additional unknown suspect. The initial investigation indicates they conspired to rob the victim of property Savage believed to be recently stolen by the victim.
