Murder Charges Filed Against Middle River Man A Year After Glen Burnie Shooting: Police
GLEN BURNIE, MD - Authorities announced Friday that they arrested “one of the suspects involved” in a year-old Glen Burnie homicide case.
Patch asked a police spokesperson if there are other suspects still on the run, but we have not yet heard back. We will update this story when we get a response.
The Anne Arundel County Police Department said it arrested 26-year-old Andre Raquan Riggs of Middle River.
Riggs is accused of killing 27-year-old Matthew Anthony Ponder of Glen Burnie.
Officers said the Glen Burnie shooting happened on Aug. 31, 2022 around 2:30 a.m. in the 400 block of M Street North East.
Authorities said they found the victim inside a home suffering from gunshot wounds.
First responders could not save the victim and they pronounced him dead on the scene, a press release said.
Police think this was a targeted attack, not a random act of violence.
Officers said they searched the area for evidence and witnesses, but they did not find a suspect at the time.
The Anne Arundel County Police Fugitive Apprehension Team found Riggs in Baltimore County this Thursday, the release said.
Authorities said they took Riggs into custody and charged him with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, home invasion, burglary, first-degree assault and related charges.
Police said they are still investigating, even though an arrest has already been made.
